Tide Mills - Unlimited Green Energy

Tide Mills - Unlimited Green Energy

A tide mill uses a pond at sea level. The tide comes in and fills the pond. The pond gates are then closed. The tide goes out. Now we have a large amount of water above sea level.

It's let out slowly, in ancient times to run a flour mill, but in modern times it could run small electric turbines. This energy is totally free and totally green.

Many countries have massive coastlines, meaning thousands of tide mills could be installed and the electricity fed to the national grid, or used to power local villages.
