Land Agreement Executed & Recorded
Annapolis, MD / ACCESSWIRE / April 24, 2014 / Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCQB: SWET, the “Company”), the inventor of large Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structures capable of producing abundant, inexpensive electricity, today is pleased to announce that the Company has made a final site selection within the City of San Luis, Arizona for the development of its first project in the United States. After a substantial evaluation of multiple sites in the southwestern part of the country over a two and a half year period, including various locations in proximity to San Luis, Arizona, the Company chose the site location that best met all of its required attributes including climate, geography, zoning, as well as a welcoming environment.
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, which was later was recorded in Yuma County, Arizona. On April 23, 2014, the City Council of San Luis, Arizona approved moving forward with a “Development and Protected Development Rights Agreement” which would facilitate the development of the Solar Wind Energy Tower Project in San Luis.
Ron Pickett, CEO of Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. stated, “The San Luis site was selected in part by utilizing our recently announced proprietary software which can accurately calculate and predict energy production 24/7 given local weather data. By feeding the weather data into the program, the outcome dictates the optimum size of the Tower’s dimensions as well as its financial performance. As a result, Solar Wind Energy deemed this location as prime for a Tower Project.”
He added, “These events are major milestones in moving our Company from a development stage company to that of a full scale development company. Now that a final site has been selected, we can focus efforts on securing the appropriate development partner and engineers to bring our tower project to life and vision to fruition. We look forward to these next steps and to getting the first Solar Wind Energy Tower Project built in San Luis.”
Abundant, Clean, Affordable Electricity Production
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.

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.
