PG&E to Develop Wave Energy Off the California Coast
Dude, waves aren't just for riding anymore. In a national first, utility PG&E (PCG) took the first step today toward developing two 40-megawatt "wave farms" off California's north coast. If the project goes forward, PG&E would likely become the world's largest producer of wave-generated electricity. The utility has asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for permission to test multiple wave energy technologies in two projects off the coast of Mendocino and Humboldt counties, inviting wave-energy companies to submit project proposals for the utility's WaveConnect initiative.
