Tidal Power India: tidal energy potential in excess of 15 gigawatts

In a written reply India's minister of state for non-conventional energy sources estimated that over 15,000 MW of tidal power potential has been estimated in the country at Gulf of Kachh & Gulf of Cambay in Gujarat and Durgaduani creek in Sunderbans in West Bengal. No tidal energy project has been installed in the country so far.

Globally the major tidal power projects currently in operation are in France (240 MW), Canada (20 MW) and Russia (0.4 MW).

It would be a dream come true to see our homes powered by solar energy and not paying any bills for it. It would really be a dream to visit some rural village to find it all lit up and dazzling with all the modern consumer electric items running on solar. I believe we should harness every researching capabilities we have in finding such a solution for trapping a whole lot of energy than it is doing now in a small solar cell. I would really like to buy an air-conditioner which runs on solar and I don't have to bother about electric bills and some day wouldn't really bother about paying my entire home electricity bill also. Question is, is it possible? Can we achieve that feat? Because if it is possible, then we would not bother about electricity and its current source anymore, which I think would be a great relief to our mother nature. She would really get a much deserved break. Imagine a market selling permanent solar electric solutions, buy once and use it forever. Hope they don't tax the sun rays then.
