Tidal Electric is exploring the potential for a 500 MW project in Mexico that will utilize the pumped storage capacity of its impoundment and incorporate output from local solar and wind projects. Tidal power, solar power, and wind power are all intermittent, but by storing the output from all three renewable sources, the combined generation can be dispatched as firm power, and not need back-up, thereby relieving the demand for back-up from the grid and raising the revenue for all three types of power.
