Bermuda to Use Ocean Power

According to an article in the Royal Gazette, the island of Bermuda is set to sink a 150ft water turbine off its coast to supplement energy production. Belco, with help from U.S. firm Current to Current is heading up the project, which aims to initially provide 10% of the island nation’s electricity.

The generator has 4 propeller blades which will turn as the ocean currents pass over it, generating power. It is a much cleaner means of electricity generation than Belco’s Oil power plants
