Commercial Wave Energy Farm Coming to Portugal

Wave power, an oft overlooked form of clean enery has had a major boost with plans for the first major wave farm underway in Portugal. The commercial project, led by OPD and a Portuguese consortium will generate enough power for 1,500 homes. The plan calls for 30 similar farms in the future. At close to $10 Million, it’s a pricey investment for the quantity of energy received – but that price will undoubtedly come down.
