Seeking an economical way is the main goal of consumers in order to procure their electricity in a competitive electricity market. To achieve this goal, consumers participate in a day ahead or a real time electricity market along with delivering the output power of their distributed generation (DG) resources. Hence, this paper proposes a new model to procure the electricity of large consumers considering the prices uncertainties and the tidal power generators. In the proposed model, uncertainties are taken into account using a two stage stochastic programming method. The conditional value at risk (CVaR) as a risk index is utilized for decreasing the undesirable effects of uncertainties. The quality of the proposed approach is examined by doing simulations on a test case based upon the semi-real data.
