Utility pulls plug on Puget Sound tidal power plan

 The Associated Press

EVERETT — A utility has pulled the plug on a project that would have tested generating electricity from tidal waters flowing in and out of Puget Sound.

The Snohomish County Public Utility District said Tuesday it cannot put two turbines under water near Whidbey Island because the U.S. Energy Department decided not to share in the rising costs.

The Daily Herald reports  the initial estimate for the tidal energy project in 2006 was $20 million. That figure has risen to $38 million.

The project was the first of its kind in the Northwest and one of the few in the world.
