Blind channel

The Blind Channel Tidal Energy Demonstration Centre in British Columbia aims to integrate Tidal Energy Converters (TECs) into community-scale renewable energy systems. Tidal energy harnesses predictable currents and has shown promise since the 1970s. Mavi Innovations successfully deployed a 25 kW TEC at Blind Channel, and with the support of PRIMED, they plan to develop it into a regional test center. The project will demonstrate a hybrid renewable energy system using tidal, solar, and diesel power, promoting the transition from diesel to renewable sources for coastal communities.
