Carribean Sea as a source of electricity instead of tropical storms?

Tropical storms (hurricanes, cyclones, etc.) are caused by hot ocean water, which heats the air above it.
It may be a good idea to install power stations, which convert the heat difference between water and air into electricity.
The power stations would float on the sea and pump electricity into wires which connect them to land.

This idea can kill two birds with one stone:

  • Less damage from hurricanes and cyclones, because we are denying them some of the energy which powers them.
  • An additional source of renewable energy.
