Quick check on your Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion. An OTEC systems was proven successful off the coast of the Big Island in Hawaii back in 1980, and the plant was run for the next 20 years or so. So OTEC is a proven clean energy source. That's why multiple Caribbean nations are working on plans to build commercial OTEC plants, and the Bahamas is already committed to building 2. Plus, the byproduct of an OTEC plant is millions of gallons of clean drinking water.

The ocean will be a key part of a "green" energy revolution, and we don't have to drill underneath it! Wave power and Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion are proven ways to extract clean energy from our vast waters. OTEC creates emission free power, 24/7/365, from the temperature difference in shallow and deep water. And the only byproduct is clean drinking water. So naturally, OTEC has the power to help millions of people around the world. The Bahamas recently committed to building 2 OTEC plants. You can read more on that deal here...
