For now, the CETO 5 wave generator is
being used to provide energy to a nearby naval base, but future
installments of the electricity-generating technology are in
3 CETO units channeling energy from the
ocean are plugged into a power grid for 14000 cumulative hours of
The below video explains how the CETO 5
240kW buoys tethered to water pumps
covert the movement of the ocean waves into high-powered water which
is then used to create hydroelectricity to power a reverse-osmosis
Carnegie Wave Energy claims the
technology doesn't harm ocean life, causes no pollution, and can be
placed at different depths of the ocean, so as not to be affected by
Ian Macfarlane, Federal Energy
Minister of Australia
"Wave-powered generation could hold
the key to viability of renewable energy because it was
predictable and could run all day. This is one of the great
success stories in innovation in renewable energy."
Australia is one of many places on the
planet that can harness wave energy effectively to provide electric
energy to its citizens, but there are many more locations around the
planet that could benefit from similar technology.
JPMorgan Chase is one of the five major
financial institutions of the US, but many Americans are not aware
of their history of crime. The company has employees all over the

Millions more were paid by
JPMorgan Chase for insurance fraud, facilitating Bernie
Madoff's embezzlement of $64.8 billion from tens of
thousands of unsuspecting investors, and more.
There will soon be no need to burn
fossil fuels, once technologies like these, and those created by
genius minds like
Nikola Tesla, are available for
the common man and woman.
