In fact, New Mexico gets roughly 310 to 350 days of the free solar substance each year making it among some of the best areas in the world for small to large-scale solar installations. And for these solar installations to be a benefit to the people and the economy, they must be hooked up to a utility transmission line normally fed by fossil fuels.
As kilowatt hour prices are on a constant upward swing however, forward thinkingMr. Wayne Sowell, General Manager Jemez Electric Cooperative execs at electrical utility companies, such as Mr. Wayne Sowell, General Manager of Jemez Electric are helping the public to begin thinking “green”. Even though data on renewable energy is becoming widely available, an astounding number of people are unaware of their abilities to simply choose clean energy…maybe it’s the large volume of scattered tid-bits of information floating in a sea of new technological choices…
So to assist with the mental processing necessary to help make these choices, Jemez Electric Cooperative invited Jetstream Wind to Cuba, New Mexico on February 10th for their public workshop on renewable energy and economic alternatives to fossil fuels. Approximately 75 people, including Cuba Independent Schools were in attendance to gain first-hand knowledge from trustworthy industry sources, including Jetstream Wind, Tri-State Generation, Positive Solar and Aurora Borealis.
Spectrum CSP Dish by Jetstream Wind, Inc.Photovoltaic solar panels (PV) have, up to this point, been the most widely recognized choice for the residential installation of solar power, thus the workshop began with its important focus on such. Following the presentation on residential applications, CEO of Jetstream Wind, Inc. Mr. Henry Herman was asked to speak on the topic of solar power and the greater and more expansive applications of CSP (concentrating solar power) not only for residential community net-metering, but also for utility-scale power generation.
He followed this by speaking about the sharp and clear advantages of CSP technology not only in power production methods, but continued on to the topic of on-site production of hydrogen through the Arc Reactor . (This is considered a very efficient power production method because vast amounts of energy are already stored and available in the water molecule). In addition, Jetstream Wind's Spectrum CSP Dish has the ability to reach the high temperatures necessary to achieve plasma pyrolysis where the molecular structure of waste is broken down into safe and often reusable elements.
In an industry where fossil fuels still reign and traditional solar, wind and geCEO Jetstream Wind, Henry Herman at Jemez Electric Coop Workshopothermal technologies are experiencing growth stunts because of their higher cost and lower efficiency ratings, Jetstream Wind’s technology is considered a “wild card” for its advancements and ease in development. We wish to thank Mr. Wayne Sowell and the Board at Jemez Electric Cooperative for inviting us to share our knowledge of the clean energy industry, where it’s going and how we can all arrive at a destination that benefits the common good of all.
