Solar Wind Energy Tower’s first Solar Wind Downdraft Tower approved in Arizona

Solar Wind Energy Tower, the inventor of large Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structures announced that the City Council of San Luis, Arizona, unanimously approved a “Development and Protected Development Rights Agreement” which guarantees the necessary local entitlements for development of the first Solar Wind Downdraft Tower in the City of San Luis, AZ. This will enable the project to produce electricity as early as 2018.
On April 11, 2014 the company executed an option agreement to purchase a site encompassing over 600 acres of land within the City of San Luis, Arizona. The site is convenient to highways, rail service, public utilities, as well as the electrical substation for the city of San Luis. The water needed for operations of the Tower will be provided by the City of San Luis at an agreed upon contract rate for a minimum period of 50 years. That combined with its convenience and ideal weather conditions make this site a perfect location for the Company’s first Solar Wind Downdraft Tower.
Solar Wind Downdraft Tower uses state of the art technologies and construction systems to produce abundant, inexpensive electricity, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The simplicity of the Company’s hybrid solar/wind technology solution is found in its ability to harness the natural power of a downdraft created within the confines of its Tower structure, a hollow cylinder reaching skyward (at a height of about 2,250 feet) into the hot, dry atmosphere heated by the solar rays of the sun. The water introduced by the injection system near the top of the Tower evaporates and is absorbed by the hot, dry air. 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. The air is then diverted into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the Tower where turbines inside the tunnels power generators to produce electricity.
