Scott commented on Ocean Wave Power Generation

I think this is a great idea and could be a real possibility for places with big waves. However everything has some environmental impact when talking about power generation. Power plants on beaches are never a pretty sight and can have a major effect on marine life.For all the power plant cons I think this has some great potential.
