Welsh tidal power generator gets £6.4m funding

Funding has been granted for the first full-scale tidal stream energy generator in Wales.

The EU has pledged £6.4 million towards the project, which will generate green electricity from the coast of west Wales for homes and businesses in the local area.

In total, the DeltaStream device will cost £11 million and is expected to be installed in 2012. It works by sitting on the sea bed and using tidal currents to generate renewable electricity.
