Using Wing Waves to Generate Electricity

Wing waves are a new alternative source to power, just like wind mills and wind turbines. A company from Tallahassee, Florida called Clean and Green Enterprise has been trying to find a way to use the sea as a source of energy in the past couple of years.  The power is generated by switching elliptical motion wave to mechanical energy after keeping it for more than 30 feet deep underwater.
According to Stephen Wood, an assistant professor of marine and environmental systems at Florida Institute of Technology’s College of Engineering, one square mile of wings can generate power to light around 200,000 houses.The use of wing waves is a clean source to generate energy, it will not affect the marine life and it can generate power even when there are no big waves.
