Hydro and wind can be seen as a form of solar energy as the sun actually moves and delivers the 'fuel'.
Neither are 'overunity' and are, in fact, inefficient. Overunity implies the efficiency is greater than 100%.

Your not taking into acount the massive loss in kinetic energy from the water.

Yes yes, there are massive losses and inefficiencies all throughout the system - and yet the water just keeps coming and coming!! It never seems to run out!
It's the WATER that's important - not the device that merely changes the kinetic energy of the water into electric power.....
Exact same principle with ZPE, or "vacuum energy" or "quantum flux energy" or whatever you want to call it. It's an inexhaustible energy source. We can argue as to whether the devices that tap that energy are "overunity" or not till we're blue in the face, but it's really irrelevant....
