The present invention is a fluid power generator with elastic tension gradient strips that move in a serpentine fashion to generate power from fluid flow. Each strip has a tension gradient that decreases going back. This allows steady serpentine movement of the strip to move a coil generator across multiple magnets to generate power. Tensioning tubes keep the strips under tension and attach the strips to a strip support that also supports a magnet holder. The magnet holder keeps the magnets in position within the coil generators so that any serpentine movement of the strip can generate power.
