Interesting. I've been in sporadic contact with John Kerr at the Port Authority, and he mentioned something like this. At one time, I think they were even considering fitting the roof with some wind turbine generators that would have fit with the design.
BTW, I keep hearing about an off-shore wharf/pier, but have seen nothing in any renderings.

Very interesting indeed.
One of the greatest applications for this type of energy could probably be Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy (off the Atlantic), where the water level between high and low tide can differ by as much as 40 feet, the highest tidal differences on the planet, IIRC.

I'd love to see this happen! Even if the "natural beauty" of the River is marred with in-takes or paddle-wheels or whatever, this will be a small price to pay for clean energy.
Next front: persuade the elitists out on Cape Code to cease preventing the installation of wind farms - it seems as though the Kennedy's would rather that our guys die to protect the oil supply so that they can have unobstructed views.
