Model tests at M.I.T. have indicated that the camtype wave power generator is capable of high efficiencies of energy extraction from ocean waves. This report presents a design methodology for determining costs of energy produced from wave power generators. Feasible designs were developed for ocean locations around the coast of the United States with the resulting breakeven costs with oil ranging from 14 to 30 $/BBL.
