Environmental aspects of this design are just as important as producing energy that is clean and sustainable for the future. To assure that no fish or wildlife is harmed by our design, we have developed a unique wildlife and debris excluder. This device will keep all larger sea life out of the rotor section. Smaller sea life can swim and flow unharmed through the open center section of the rotor.

The impact of our turbines on the ocean floor is practically zero, because each unit is either anchored to the seabed like a vessel or mounted on a single piling driven into the substrate. This results in a very small footprint which has practically no effect on the environment of the installation. Another important factor is that a Hydrokinetic Turbine Array is invisible from land, is quiet, and does not take up valuable real estate.
