Wave Energy Project for Rhode Island

Here's a Press Release (9/7/2004) announcing a wave energy project proposed off the coast of Rhode Island, GreenWave Rhode Island. The proposed pilot, which will be located more than a mile off the coast of Rhode Island is an estimated $3.5 million project to convert ocean waves into clean electricity.

According to the press release:
The pilot project, planned to operate for three years, has received $1 million in planning and development funds from the renewable energy funds of three New England states (Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut). Company officials said the facility is planned as a not-for-profit operation intended to demonstrate the commercial viability of its wave energy technology. Research for the project is being conducted by the University of Rhode Island (URI), world-renowned for oceanographic science and education.
