Innovative Renewable Hybrid Solar / Wind Energy Technology
We view ourselves as a hybrid solar/wind technology, reflected in the name, Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. The simplicity of our solution is comprised of harnessing the natural power of a downdraft created within the confines of our Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structure, a hollow cylinder reaching skyward 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 and is diverted into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the Tower where turbines inside the tunnels power generators to produce electricity.
Abundant, Clean, Affordable Electricity Production
The Company has successfully managed to economize the Tower, reducing capital costs and improving projected financial performance. This development was made possible by utilizing our recently announced software which can calculate and predict energy production by our Solar Wind Downdraft Towers given local weather data. By feeding the weather data into the program, the Tower’s height and diameter can be adjusted along with the amount of water added as fuel to create a desired amount of energy. The outcome dictates the optimum size of the Tower’s height and width.
Under the most recent design specifications, the first San Luis Tower has a design capacity on an hourly basis, of up to 1,250 megawatt hours, gross. Due to lower capacities during winter days, the average hourly output per day for sale to the grid for the entire year is approximately 435 megawatt hours.
