A small scale hydro plant was to be placed in the Tuksuk Channel. The power generated by the channel would then be used to supply the surrounding region with electricity. It was determined that using the channel in this manner would not be feasible due to cost of transmission installation, lack of flow rate data for the river and tidal surges. A wind farm alternative proved more feasible and a more cost effect option. The windfarms would have an estimated payback period of seven years.
