The Oregon Legislative Assembly has appropriated $800,000 to support the Pacific Marine Energy Center’s South Energy Test Site (PMEC-SETS) grid-connected wave energy test site.

The appropriation was made to the Oregon State University National Marine Renewable Energy Center, which is working on developing the PMEC-SETS off Newport, Oregon.

The site is expected to feature full-scale, grid-connected testing capabilities with multiple berths where developers can test utility scale wave energy converters in the ocean with a connection to the electric utility grid via a subsea cable.
