Ocean Power

Why wave power?

Under water barrages range from sphere type objects connected to the ocean bed to long tubes that stretch over a long distance. When the waves cause them spin, they move a turbine and create electricity.

Reservoir, A reservoir takes advantage of the waves, moving water into a reservoir on the coastline. As water moves back out into the ocean it is forced down a tube and turns the blades of turbine. The turbine then converts the energy into electricity.
