As Some Talk Wind Farms, Others Want to Harness the Tides

[Boston Globe] It could soon get crowded in waters off Cape Cod. With two large wind farms proposed for Nantucket Sound and Buzzards Bay, a third developer is staking a claim on Vineyard Sound to test the site for a tidal energy project. The Massachusetts Tidal Energy Co. is considering building an underwater tidal energy project in state waters off Martha’s Vineyard and Naushon Island, the private island owned by the Forbes family and used by US Senator John F. Kerry. While plans are preliminary — even the technology is still under development — the developer is seeking approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for a feasibility study in parts of the Sound extending from Woods Hole to the southern tip of Naushon Island.
