1st U.S. wave energy generator at KMCH

The Wave Energy Technology (WET) project is an Office of Naval Research (ONR) venture that is using ocean waves to generate electricity. Off the coast of the Marine Corps Base Hawai‘i (MCBH) a WET demonstration project has set up buoys to harness wave power. One buoy can generate up to 20 kilowatts of electricity, enough to power 10 homes. [More]
