The Hoquiam City Council passed a resolution endorsing a proposal to place tidal turbines at the mouth of the Columbia River, Willapa Harbor and Grays Harbor.

It’s a joint effort by Pacific County and the Grays Harbor County PUD.

PUD General Manager Rick Lovely told KXRO the utility hopes to gain permits next year and put the first turbine in the water in 2011.
