Roswell, is Becoming the Hub of Green Energy
Yes, there may have been suspicious sightings. Yes, there may have been a government cover-up back in 1947. (Heck, even Indiana Jones mentioned his involvement). But there is one thing that is completely non-debatable, and that is the fact that Roswell, New Mexico is bathed in sunshine most of the year. (My apologies to one and all who have been living through this never-ending winter across the country). However, because of the ultimate sunshine, bringing solar power projects to Roswell would certainly be the best choice for all those ‘intelligent life forms’ out there who wish to create clean energy for entire communities.
Enter…Green States Energy, Inc. This particular company is known for their projects – from solar to wind and everything in between – as they try and help this world become energy efficient so that we no longer drain the earth’s natural elements.
This independent power producer, which has always been focused on developing, acquiring and operating clean energy generation facilities, have turned their focus once again on New Mexico to provide clean, reliable electric generation to local governments, utilities, commercial and industrial clients.
Owning more than 8MW of operating solar facilities with a total annual output of more than 10 million kilowatt-hours of electricity, Green States Energy has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they know their business inside and out. Their project pipeline is one that has hit all the media and is comprised of over 100MW of generation capacity. Their ultimate strategy is to transform the ‘best’ technologies and processes into solutions that can be effective and will work responsibly in various locations around the globe. With offices spanning from New Jersey to Switzerland, GSE has grown by leaps and bounds by being creative and staying ahead of the competition.
What Green States Energy offers are not products for sale, they actually work on projects that span the world of technology in order to help the communities that need help by examining each and every power generation opportunity and determining what is the best fit for each of them. Because of the state of the earth, Green States Energy literally helps everyone from the U.S. and beyond, offering them geographic diversity so that they can literally choose the right projects and match them with the right technologies. It is no wonder that GSE is one icon on the stock market that many people are investing in, seeing as that their long and profitable future is a given.
Solar power is not new; it’s most definitely a technology that many people across the globe want to depend on, allowing them to move farther and farther away from the energy resources that are harming the very earth we live on. Now, solar PV installations are just like the realm of agriculture, because they are not quite as high off the ground as a corn crop so they will never interfere with sightlines. And, once they’re planted, so to speak, a solar PV installation offers absolutely no noise to bother anyone in the community, as they generate electricity for up to thirty years or more. Emissions-free electricity – this is a plus no matter how you look at it.
Costs a are reduced (which everyone wants to have happen in all areas of their lives), simply because the fuel created is stable, free and knows no bounds. It does not depend on any outside energy sources. The sun is all that’s needed – and in New Mexico, of course, that’s basically all you receive.
In addition, solar PV requires almost no maintenance – once they’re built they will only cost approximately 2.5 cents each YEAR to operate. Solar PV works during the daytime, which is the peak time for users, and they produce maximum output during the summer which, of course, is when utility costs are at their peak because of those pesky air conditioners that suck the money right out of the bank account.
This new Roswell project will not only bring jobs to the community, which are desperately needed, but also bring the power along with it. The project is being called ‘GSE NM-2,’ and it will be a 2.5 MW ground-mounted solar PV project. It is scheduled for construction during the first half of 2013, and the electricity produced from the project will be sold to the local utility server, Xcel Energy. The #2 project will be combined with #1, which included many areas such as Dexter, which is close to Roswell, receiving solar power sites. With the two combined, more than 9 million kilowatt-hours of electricity will be provided to the community, which will be enough to serve approximately 780 homes. The CO2 emissions saved will be at or over 225,000 tons and the SO2 emissions saved will be over 990 tons, when you take in the projects’ full shelf life.
All communities, all states – everyone needs to be a part of the ‘solar movement’ simply because it is time to save both money and the earth; not to mention, the extra jobs will be a blessing.
Soon it will not be just the 1947 incident that everyone remembers; when it comes to Roswell, the 2013 Solar Project may just take the lead. (Although, between you and me, the UFO Festival is a real blast!)
