Can Hydroelectric dams and tidal energy be used together?

    If the hydroelectricity and the tidal energy goes to the same power companies, sure. However, dams are located on rivers, while tidal energy is in the ocean. You don’t see many dams that are located that close to the ocean. In both instances, the water runs through a turbine, and the turbine works a generator. The electricity from the generator is then taken to the power lines. Now, if the same company owns the power lines, it’s perfectly reasonable that you could use both types of energy together. If two different companies own a specific set of power lines, you probably won’t be able to have access to both hydroelectricity from dams and the tidal energy unless you want to pay both electric bills.
