Snohomish County Power Utility District (SnoPUD)
SnoPUD is prospecting for tidal power around western Washington, but is focusing their pilot studies on a site in Admiralty Inlet just SW of the Keystone ferry terminal.

- 2009-2010 baseline study project (private site for project collaborators: The Whale Museum, Orca Network, SMRU, Beam Reach, +)
Kinetic Hydropower System Demonstration
As of October, 2009, the most likely site for this test of Verdant turbines is off the southeast side of Marrowstone Island.
Site of the first tidal turbine in the Salish Sea, supporting the green power transition orchestrated by Pearson College at the Race Rocks Ecological Preserve.
