Hydro Venturi tidal power


Matt, do you have a link to the committee hearing you had about Tidal Power where the guy came in and showed a lego looking set up of concrete blocks to stack under Golden Gate Bridge with no moving parts but with concave sides that harrowed in center which had connecting hollow tubes that sucked air from above water thru Above Surface and not even in the water turbines.

I can’t find any mention of any such engineering.

They all have pics of turbines under water being turned directly by force of tide and the company you had come in had a system that had NO moving parts under water.

Capacity was also vastly greater in that company’s design.

Remember that?

Someone shilling for PG&E noted that Hydro was in bankruptcy and could the City do business with a company in bankruptcy.

Ted Lakey looked in wonder and replied:

"PG&E is in bankruptcy now and we do business with them."

Has Big Oil suppressed this source of energy?

Several tidal power barrages operate around the world. The Sihwa Lake Tidal Power Station in South Korea has the largest electricity generation capacity at 254 megawatts (MW). The oldest and second-largest operating tidal power plant is in La Rance, France, with 240 MW of electricity generation capacity. The next largest tidal power plant is in Annapolis Royal in Nova Scotia, Canada, with 20 MW of electricity generation capacity. China, Russia, and South Korea all have smaller tidal power plants.

Becky, didn’t you visit this place in LaRance?
