Bringing the Ocean’s Power Home

For the inaugural “Life on the Coast” issue of Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors, I covered the launch of Ocean Renewable Power Company’s first grid-connected tidal energy device in Cobscook Bay. I’ve been following the issue of tidal power in the Gulf of Maine since the emergence of new data and updated federal regulations opened the field for development. Older stories can be found in The Working Waterfront, “Tidal power proposals proliferate along the Maine coast” and “FERC grants nine tidal energy permits in Maine“.
