The <a href="http://earthfix.kuow.org/energy/article/harnessing-tides-in-the-northwest/" title="">pilot project</a> would generate enough power for about 20 homes annually. The <a href="http://www.eere.energy.gov/golden/ReadingRoom/NEPA/Draft/1949/FERC%20EA_DOE%20EA%201949.pdf" title="">new report</a> from Federal Energy Regulatory Commission says that the project will not harm the environment.
