  1. There is an interesting discussion on this topic at tallblokes talkshop with some good background data as well.
    Even large barrages do not produce much electricity.

    1. Thanks. Found it.

      The tidal generators I remember tend to get pounded to crap by the ocean and then fail. At least this one “looks” heavy duty. I have my doubts.

      The huge advantage tidal generators have over wind turbines is that no one is mass producing them yet … so they aren’t wasting subsidies.

      I have no objection to spending lots on research until they make a breakthrough.

      I do think they will kill sea life though.
