JUNEAU - Natural Currents Energy Group, a New York state-based company, says Gastineau Channel might be a good place to test out - and show off - the power of tidal energy. The group applied for a permit for a small project to build six to 12 turbines anchored to the sea floor or pivoting docks. The turbines would generate enough energy to power 20 to 30 homes, according to Alaska Electric Light and Power Co. spokesman Scott Willis.
