Maine Launches First Commercial Tidal Energy Power Project in U.S. (


Around 200 people gathered in Eastport, Maine, on Tuesday, July 24, to dedicate the first commercial tidal energy generation project in the United States. The project by Portland, Maine-based Ocean Renewable Power Co. should be online in early fall, and will eventually produce enough electricity with its 20 underwater turbines to power 1,200 homes. Maine and Alaska are the only two U.S. states with tides strong enough for commercial energy production.


  1. I so enjoy the variety of articles. Well done! Was surprised that more was not shared relative to the on-campus discussion concerning Islam, it’s radical elements and the future for a worldwide relationship. How do we as a planet move forward?

    Why are seemingly young Muslim people seeing a future that requires shortening theirs? Even here in the USA.

    Middle Eastern history seems full of tribal warfare. I am reminded of the Seven Pillars of Wisdom. So what will facilitate a change in that way of looking at life by a very destructive but small percentage of a large population. The majority also seeing their own well being being destroyed by that radicalized group.
