Alternative Energy Booms in Rural Areas
The Daily Yonder points to a tidal energy company in rural Maine that's making major strides.
"The Ocean Renewable Power Company (ORPC), based in Portland, Maine, is developing hydrokinetic energy by using ocean tides and currents to twirl electricity-producing turbines.
They are testing a Beta version of their Turbine Generator Unit (TGU) in Cobscook Bay at Eastport, Maine. The Beta TGU is the largest ocean energy device deployed in U.S. waters thus far."
