Great potential! But,FERC Permits Delaying Project
"Since 2005, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has issued 137 preliminary permits for entities hoping for power from sources as diverse as the Ohio River and Oregon waves, according to Celeste Miller, a commission spokeswoman. None has been issued for Florida, though two of 68 pending applications are for Florida from a Maine company, Ocean Renewable Power, that wants to test a turbine at the envisioned FAU test seabed. The permits give the holders the right to study a site for three years."
