This was an old 2007 news item I read on a small tidal plant in Maharashtra. Even though it was a small one in size, it was a good beginning I felt.

“The Maharashtra Govt is setting up a small tidal power plant in 2 coastal villages in Ratnagiri district. A pilot of sorts it will produce between 15 to 20 kW of power . The project costs about Rs 4.5 million ($100,000), and similar projects are underway in 15 other villages. The hope is that the success of this project could lead to a similar project with a capacity of 250 kW.”

I tried googling to figure out what the status of these projects were currently. Tough luck! I couldn’t find much

Would be grateful if someone could update me on this.
