Updated journal reprints from Energy, November/December 1983, (MITSG 83-28J) will be included upon request. No charge. At the time of the report there was interest in Maine in an integrated system of small tidal power facilities in lieu of one large project. Without taking sides in the large vs. small discussion, this two-part report develops a generic approach to the preliminary design and costing of a small-scale tidal power project. It provides information to help quantify technical performance and capital costs and discusses environmental effects.
