A safe, reliable and sustainable way to generate power, in-stream tidal energy in the Bay of Fundy is opening new doors in the renewable energy sector. Cape Sharp Tidal's first 2MW turbine is now producing enough power for 500 homes. In 2017, it will be joined by a second 2MW turbine, making it one of the largest generating instream tidal arrays in the world. The completed 4MW demonstration project will displace the need to burn about 2,000 tonnes of coal, and eliminate 6,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) C02 emissions-the equivalent of taking 1,000 cars off the road each year.
