Navy aims to expand wave power testing in Kaneohe
Frederickson said it was too early to say how much power ocean waves would generate for the Marine base.
The Navy plans to seek three ocean energy power developers to work on the project. Last week, it explained its plans to the industry during a conference at the base.
Frederickson said the Navy would select companies that have the greatest potential provide it with commercial wave energy in the future.
Capt. Pete Lynch, the engineering command's vice commander for the Pacific, said the Navy is committed to reducing its dependence on fossil fuels.
"The ocean is an untapped resource and possible source of renewable energy," he said in a statement issued about the industry conference.
