Caption: Annapolis Royal is home to the first and only modern tidal power plant in North America. The Annapolis Tidal Generating Station in Annapolis, Nova Scotia, employs the largest straight-flow turbine in the world and is capable of producing more than 30 million kilowatt-hours per year, enough electricity to power 4,500 homes. The Annapolis power plant generates electricity converting kinetic energy from the quickly flowing tides of the Bay of Fundy. The Annapolis station attracts more than 35,000 visitors a year, who are anxious to see the plant first-hand and learn about its potential as a resource.
