Wave Power for Oregon

This article,
Making energy waves in Gardiner
,(4/7/05) reports on a prototype wave energy system currently under development at Oregon State University and intended for deployment off the coast of Gardiner, OR. According to the article, the site was selected for its wave conditions as well as proximity to an electrical substation. The OSU program has the support of EPRI, which also set its sites on Gardiner as the prime spot to launch a $4.6 million, two-year pilot project to determine the feasibility of wave energy technology, including how much it would cost to operate and how well the technology would respond to storms.
