Renewable Source

Ocean/River currents and Tidal currents are by far the most reliable source of renewable energy on our planet. They are as predictable as clockwork and fluctuate very little during meteorological events and condition changes. As long as the earth rotates and the moon orbits the earth there will be ocean currents and tides, day and night regardless of the weather. Solar energy produces efficient output only a few hours a day and only when it’s not overcast. Solar is very much affected by meteorological conditions. Wind energy is a good source of power but the wind speeds can fluctuate tremendously. The wind intensity can vary from dead calm to a raging storm; both extremes are not usable for electrical generation.
