Go with the Flow: Water Turbines in the East River

AE Man points to this interesting article on Verdant Power's plans to install experimental water turbines in the East River off of New York City.

Verdant Power, which develops free-flow, low impact hydro facilities "on a utility and village scale", tested a single 16-kW water turbine on a barge in the East River in 2003. They are now working to install six turbines underwater in anticipation of a federal permitting process that may eventually lead to installation of over 300 turbines in a 1-mile stretch of the East River.
