Tidal Power: Swansea Bay, Wales

Ocean Tides to Power 155K Homes

This planned power plant in Wales may look like the Guggenheim Museum but its benefits far outweigh the beauty: it will use the rise and fall of ocean tides to generate enough renewable electricity to power 155,000 homes for 120 years.

 When completed, the structure will produce electricity enough to displace more than a quarter million barrels of oil each year— while leaving virtually nocarbon footprint.
