Thanks for two more good summaries, Jim.

Have you taken a look at the size of these tidal dams? Here's a pic of the dam here: https://www.fae.sk/Dieret/Hydro/rance.gif. These guys are as big as hydro dams, have equally large impacts on the river eco-system (in this case on the very rich estuarial ecosystem) and produce only about 1/10th the power as a comparably sized hydro dam. Not exacly worth it in my opinion.

The other options seem to be better though, especially the ones that are independantly installed (I'm not sure about the environmental effects of making man-made lagoons for tidal power either).

I have an idea to harness tidal power that is simple, scaleable, and won't require massive civil enginering projects like tidal barriers.

Where should I go to discuss it?

Would like to read on some experience from really running tidal power stations; lifetime problems, sedimentation, change of tidal heights.

I'm half way through reading this item on the 40 year old Rance Tidal Barrage ecological observations. It mentions sedimentation and changing tidal patterns.

I'm working on a green house project. I'm really interested by this Tidal Power and I really would like to know if it's reliable for single housing application.
thanks a lot!
