What are the pros of tidal power as an alternative energy source? : 

What are the pros of tidal power as an alternative energy source? Tidal power is free of expense when the dam is built Tidal energy is easy to maintain Tidal energy is renewable http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BWvzYthAE50/SK4utUEXl_I/AAAAAAAAAL8/wPxXxeX3dh8/s320/tidal+turbine.bmp http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20061029171632AA7bYU2

What are the cons of tidal power as an alternative energy source? : 

What are the cons of tidal power as an alternative energy source? Tidal power is not currently economically available because the cost of trying to build the dam is outrageous Construction can affect the water transportation system in an negative way Maximum energy production is limited to 2.5 terawatts http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20061029171632AA7bYU2 http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/business/committees/enterprise/inquiries/rei/ec04-reis-greenheatsystem-1.gif
