HEA candidates share some thoughts; District 1: Richard deMello

Posted: Friday, May 02, 2003

I began the study of electricity many years ago and regretted not having majored in related studies while in high school and college. I've since convinced my daughter to go into it, and now she has a few semesters left before she can be a fully certified electrician. Her husband is at or very close to being a licensed electrician, just like his dad.

My interests lie in trying to find ways to create electricity cleanly and economically. More than five years ago, I looked into some possibilities to accomplish this.

One of these methods is to utilize the strength of the Cook Inlet's tidal strengths to accomplish this.

It isn't something new. It's being done on the European arena and other places, I believe. I'd like to see it here. We have the resource, and it's a continually renewing resource and also very clean.

I'd also like to see my electric bill go down considerably. I believe it can happen.

Eventually, gas, oil, coal will diminish in availability and seemingly will rise in cost so the idea of a new and replenishable source seems to me to be a good way to go. Maybe I won't have to pay re-connect fees too often due to lower costs.
