Yourbrook Energy is a privately owned company exploring tidal power here on Haida Gwaii. The team is made-up of Island residents -- Laird Bateham, Dan Abbott, and Alden Bateham -- who have a unique idea for close-looped freshwater tidal technology. The objective is to harness energy from the constant ebb and flow of the tide to create a reliable and consistent source of clean power.
The prototype is now collecting data in Justkatla Narrows, and on Friday, Clyde Greenough talked with CBC about the project. Listen to the interview online and visit the Yourbrook Energy website for more information on the technology and the company's vision for displacing diesel-generated electricity.
