Progress with energy harvesting buoy

The PowerBuoy was deployed on December 14, 2009 off the coast of Oahu in water depth of 100 feet. The PowerBuoy has operated and produced power from over 3 million power take-off cycles and 4,400 hours of operation and is about 150 feet in length although most of the buoy is underwater. It can generate a peak of 150 kilowatts of power and feed the grid in waves between 4.9 feet and 22.9 feet.
