Renewable energy company Hydro Alternative Energy announced that it recently conducted initial in-water, off-shore testing of its patent pending turbine prototype designed for use in planned commercialized tidal water power applications.

Mark Antonucci, chief financial officer and co-founder of HAE, was quoted as saying: "We are wildly excited about the results of such initial testing, which far exceeded our expectations. Our turbine technology will clearly accelerate our efforts to produce working turbines for clean, low-cost electric energy production and deployment in slow moving water in areas not yet currently serviced."
