Coastal electricity

Here's a technique that can generate electricity by swapping salty and fresh water. Essentially you charge a battery in fresh water, replace the fresh water with salty water, and discharge the battery. The swap generates more electricity than originally went into the battery for a net gain in power. This would be another way to harness the solar power put into the Earth's system by the rain cycle.
