The Wave of the Future: Grays Harbor files another wave energy application

E & E reported yesterday that Grays Harbor Ocean Energy filed an application with FERC to build 100 structures similar to offshore oil platforms 12 to 25 miles south of Block Island transmitting the electricity to Block Island and to the mainland at Jerusalem, Rhode Island.  The structures use wave energy to pump air through turbines to create electricity.  Grays Harbor's Rhode Island wave-to-energy project in Rhode Island is similar to the project applications it has filed in California, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey.
