The Tidal Tyrants

Currently, mainstream renewable energy sources are unreliable because they depend on weather conditions which constantly change. An example of a renewable energy source being unreliable is a solar panel in a substantial storm with prolonged cloud cover. Also, wind power is only available when wind speeds are moderate. Solar panels are only able to convert at most, 22% of solar energy into usable electricity, and wind turbines are at best 40% efficient in the most favorable of conditions. Tidal turbines are 80% percent efficient, and much more reliable than wind energy. Tides can be easily and reliably predicted, and their movement is not left to random factors. The purpose of this project is to design a tidal stream turbine which would be located in the Absecon Inlet.

Completion of this project will cost an estimated 7 million dollars to build a tidal turbine which can generate about 80kwh of electricity in the Absecon Inlet, making our district a leader in renewable energy technology.
