I'm interested to hear from people close to this project as to the reception it is getting in Eastport. Tidal energy sounds intriguing at first look.
I've read that the supplied energy is currently running at about 2x the current electrical costs for homeowners, though. Is this correct? I would imagine the cost would decrease over time, but again I would be very interested to hear more from those in tune with this story.

Here is an article in Forbes about the dedication ceremony:
