geothermal power
"Sitting on top of a volcano may be just what Nevis, a small sombrero-shaped Caribbean Island, needs to become one of the greenest nations on Earth...., this former British colony is about to tap into the geothermal power that lies beneath its pristine surface."

RE: geothermal power
Geothermal power will require deeper drilling than for oil, in many regions... *lots* of drilling to occur.

RE: geothermal power
Not even close to being the same, but does anyone know of any (even experimental) residential sized power generating equipment that uses wave motion or tidal (without requiring a big dam like the Bay of Fundy)?

Here is a small water powered turbine for home/boat use, not cheap

I find this interesting as well, and Maine should be the leader in tidal. Biggest tides, and there are so many islands in Maine.

Out by Eastport electricity is being generated by gorlov turbines. They're really really big.

Why don't they make smaller ones? I think that might be a ways away, but, you know, put a small Gorlov turbine under the dock on island, generate electricity.

That's what the tidal generator looks like. Smaller ones under the dock in the future.

RE: geothermal power
Or put them between the spans of a bridge, lots of bridges in Maine. Clean, predictable, and not a blight on the landscape.

RE: geothermal power
The type I am seeking is a wavebuoy that just floats on the water and rocks with the waves, or possibly one that has floats on the end of arms stationed on the shore or a dock. These would not harm Osprey, fish, lobsters, clams or any other endangered species. The fishermen here would be a bigger threat. LOL

RE: geothermal power
Here is a link to a company that specializes in tidal power, it will only be a mater of time until it gets down to a smaller version that is affordable, IMO
