  • 1. Tidal Power Randie Engstrom Neadeau Period: 7
  • 2. About <ul><li>It is a type of hydropower that converts the energy from tides into electricity. </li></ul>

  • 6. Tides <ul><li>Tides can vary up to 40 feet high. </li></ul><ul><li>There are only about 20 locations where we can get energy like this. </li></ul>
  • 7. Disadvantages <ul><li>The most potential disadvantage of tidal power would be the impact it has on plants and animals. </li></ul>
  • 8. Advantages <ul><li>Renewable </li></ul><ul><li>Reliable </li></ul><ul><li>Predictable </li></ul><ul><li>Non-polluting </li></ul>
