A local company is testing the viability of replacing diesel generated power on the islands with wave power.
Yourbrook energy systems have been testing a prototype for just under a month.
Clyde Greenough is the manager of Yourbrook and he says 10 coastal communities are tied to diesel generators, and it’s important to find alternate energy.
Greenough adds the importance of saving as much money as possible and keeping Canada green.
Yourbrook says they have spent about 800 thousand dollars to date on the Tidal generation project.
