Use the East River to Power the Subway

Well here’s an idea that finally makes sense.

This year, the surging current of the East River will help provide power to a nearby subway station. The lights that lace the ornate interior of Manhattan’s Grand Central Station have largely been replaced by bulbs that burn brightly but save energy. There are plans to make the rooftop of a Queens bus depot bloom like a garden. [USA TODAY]

Do some more of that and maybe the MTA can get their finances under control.  Save a little dough.

Maybe they could figure our a way to turn the oppressive summer subway heat into electricity.
