Tidal Power – Starting to Take Hold
Four years ago Lois and I attended a conference on the potentials of Tidal Power here in the United States and the World. Lots of buzz was going on about Verdant Powers plans to place 30 underwater turbines under the East River in New York. Since then Tidal Power has gotten some attention in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, not much here in the United States. Here is a story about how that may be changing.
On a personal note, we feel that tidal power is much like solar and wind in that by tapping the natural cycles of the planet man could produce much more power than they would ever need, what is needed is awareness and action. Think about it a never ending, non polluting form of energy production, that unlike fossil fuels does not destroy water resources in the name of electrical production.

Let us know what you think about the potential of tidal power.
