About Tidal Energy
A predictable and reliable source of renewable energy, tidal energy has been used for generations around the world. Today, we’re working to generate more power than ever before, while still protecting our oceans.
There are several ways to generate tidal power. Cape Sharp Tidal uses tidal turbines to create energy. Tidal turbines are like wind turbines but are submersible. As tides ebb and flow, ocean currents move across the blades turning them, and creating clean energy.
Tidal turbines work best when two land masses form a narrow passage where ocean waters flow. The Bay of Fundy, and its powerful tides that come and go every day, is a perfect location for a tidal project.
