Tidal Power

The Herald reports:

A tidal power station on the Kaipara Harbour seafloor could be providing power to a quarter of a million homes by the end of the decade.

The Environment Court has made a positive recommendation to Conservation Minister Tim Groser on a plan to generate electricity from the harbour’s swift tidal flow.

I think using renewable is the way of the future. That doesn’t mean I think we can or should transition there overnight, as if you suddenly switch off Huntly, there will be blackouts.
