Re: Alternative to Solar
There is a project on the east river...
RITE Project - Verdant Power
I learned about that some years ago, but do not know if it has been taken further...
I'd heard about that years ago. Every time I look at one of those GIGANTIC container ships, it occurs to me that if the energy in their displacement being moved up and down by the rise and fall of tide, could be somehow converted to mechanical rotation, it'd have to be a lot of ergs.
