This 1000-Ton Turbine Will Harvest Tidal Energy to Power 500 Homes in Canada

by Kate Lunau, MotherBoard

The Bay of Fundy, on Canada’s East Coast, has famously strong tides. An incoming tide can pull 160 billion tonnes of seawater into the bay, with a vertical range of over 16 metres, and swift tidal currents. It has the highest recorded tides in the world.

For a long time, green energy advocates have wanted to harness that powerful tide to produce energy, and now it’s happening. Continue reading This 1000-Ton Turbine Will Harvest Tidal Energy to Power 500 Homes in Canada
