The project is located between eastern Maine and Canada in the Bay of Fundy. The bay has a tidal range of 50 feet and is one of the largest ranges in the world. The generated electricity is fed into the Bangor Hydro Electric Company power grid for distribution through northern and eastern Maine. ORPC plans to increase the project's generation capacity to 5 megawatts over the next several years.
