Tidal Turbine Model

A model of underwater tidal turbine.

Full size turbines like the model above are placed across tidal rivers in underwater farms. They generate electricity from the mass movement of water by tides. Tidal energy is not widely used due to challenges of local geography and engineering however it is more reliable than wind and solar power.
