Since 2002, Verdant Power has been developing water turbine technology to generate electric power from the currents of the East River at a Roosevelt Island site behind Gristedes on the Queens side of the East Promenade.

Tomorrow evening, March 29, Verdant Power is hosting an Open House to update the Roosevelt Island community on the Roosevelt Island Tidal Energy Project. You're invited to come learn about the project. According to Verdant Power:
Please join us on March 29th at the Roosevelt Island Senior Association for a free information session hosted by Verdant Power. We'll be discussing a planned installation of our next generation marine renewable technology and what this means for you. This will put Roosevelt Island at the forefront of new clean energy. We hope that you will come by and learn how to play a role in making sustainability a future reality. We'll be making short presentations throughout the evening and staff will be available to answer questions. RSVPs are encouraged and will be appreciated:

A Verdant Power spokesperson adds:
Verdant Power has just launched equity crowd funding campaign to raise $1M in small dollar amounts from regular citizens. This campaign is made possible by the recent implementation of the JOBS Act, which affords average citizens the chance to get in on the ground floor of promising start-up companies. The Company is optimistic that this type of investment vehicle will democratize the corporate financing process. More on the just-launched campaign can be found here:
