Inslee helps Navy harness tidal power

U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee is celebrating a Navy project aimed at harnessing tidal power off Marrowstone Island in Puget Sound.

“I have worked hard in Congress to secure funding for this project and I’m excited to see the results,” the Bainbridge Democrat said. “As we face the crisis of climate change head-on as a nation, it’s critically important that everyone — including the federal government — work to diversify our electricity sources to include clean, renewable power supplies like hydrokinetic energy.”

The demonstration project is part of a congressional mandate that requires military agencies to generate at least 25 percent of their power from renewable sources.
