Water Mills are a type of generator in the Industrial Craft mod. It is relatively cheap to craft Water Mills, as doing so will provide the player with two Water Mills each. Each generator produces 0.01 EU per tick per water block surrounding it, going as high as 0.25 EU per tick. However, when a Water Bucket is placed in the bottom slot, a Water Mill will produce 2 EU per tick.
The use of Water Mills was popularized by automated systems such as one created by ShadwDrgn. In his system, an infinite water source is placed next to a system consisting of a filter, a deployer, a retriever, a timer, and waterproof pipes. The system constantly places full water buckets into the Water Mills, moving empty ones back out to be refilled. At the cost of the small amount of blutricity to power the retriever, the Water Mills will generate 4 times as much EU per day as solar panels.
