While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    A BIG SOLAR WIND

    A tower of power: Bizarre half-mile-high structure could produce as much electricity as 100,000 wind turbines

    Jonathan O’Callaghan, May 23, 2014 (UK Daily Mail)

    “…Permission has been granted to build the [half a mile tall] Solar Wind Energy Tower…[in the Arizona desert]…[It can reportedly] produce as much power as the Hoover Dam…The tower works by spraying water in at the top, making air heavy and causing it to fall, which causes 120 huge turbines to turn at the bottom…At peak operation, during a particularly sunny day, the tower can apparently [use downdraft technology to] produce 1,250 megawatt-hours - roughly equivalent to the power output of wind turbines spread over 100,000 acres…But the main advantage of this system, according to the company, is that it can run day and night and it does not rely on particular weather, such as wind or sunshine, to operate…One possible stumbling block could be the cost of the project, which is estimated to be about $1.5 billion…However, Solar Wind Energy have been granted preliminary funding by National Standard Finance, which should make the project feasible…” click here for more
