Continent’s Tallest Approved Structure to Produce Solar-Wind Energy Hybrid at U.S.-Mexican Border
This thing is almost designed to discredit green energy. Spraying fresh clean water in a dessert state where clean water is at a premium is just stupid.
This project will burn 1.5 billion dollars of public money building a massive building only to create water shortages.
Just where is this water going to come from? Green projects need to generate water and power, not consume them.
If they could do this with sea water, great, but this is not the case.
“A series of pumps deliver water to the Tower’s injection system at the top where a fine mist is cast across the entire opening. The water introduced by the injection system then evaporates and is absorbed by hot dry air which has been heated by the solar rays of the sun. As a result, the air becomes cooler, denser and heavier than the outside warmer air, and falls through the cylinder at speeds up to and in excess of 50 mph. This air is then diverted into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the Tower where turbines inside the tunnels power generators to produce electricity.
