Here’s a great learning experience, Listen carefully to Jon’s words, does he come off as impartial, or is he the Cheer Leader for committing every rate payer in Nevada to making the investment in a hurry so they don’t pass up the once in a lifetime opportunity? Take some notes as you watch this.. The discussion of the transmission lines, did you know that Wind Energy Investors in Washington State >assumed< they had full access to a transmission line, and now they are attempting to sue the FED (we taxpayers) for their losses when the transmission is not available to them?
Watch bobble head Guy Blanchard push for “do it now’, everyone wants our stuff, don’t miss out on your chance to get it first, we are proven leaders, we have a proven product, don’t lose out…. we’ll have so many orders, we won’t be able to build it for you in Nevada. Isn’t that the same thing the car salesmen told you when you said you’d have to think it over?
So.. it’s now 6/2/2012, we have a 2MW Amonix power plant at the University of Arizona, what is the rated output and what is the power production at the Moment? We have another Amonix Power Plant in Hatch New Mexico, how is that power plant performing? The mention of Alamosa in this Face to Face, it’s now a reality, and it’s producing power, does it live up to what was promised?
Lidia Ball, an expert in Solar PV? We’ll find out When Jon Ralston invites her back along with Guy Blanchard to find out what went right, and what went wrong with Amonix.
We’ll find out if Jon Ralston delivers the facts, or if he’s part of the cheer leading squad..
You just can’t argue with the facts, and they’re right there in the field! Today 11 of the 36 Amonix trackers at the University of Arizona no longer track the sun, and 8 or more at Hatch New Mexico are broken as well, and… just what kind of power do these power plants make compared to the advertised output? Is there anyone interested in reporting the real story?
Do consider turning up your pant legs, there’s a lot of BS out there to step in, and the Media thinks it’s their job to tell you what you need to hear instead of report the facts and let you decide. It’s what I think, and comments are welcome, maybe you’ll tell me what I have wrong? Of great value to all Americans is a good understanding of what we actually got out of our investments and those others made. Was it irrigatable farm land that was used for the Amonix Power plants at Hatch New Mexico and Alamosa Colorado? If we were truly interested in conservation, we’d put this topic in abeyance for about six years and look back on it.. What did the power plants provide to humanity (return on investment), and what could have been produced if the land had been left in hands of agriculture? What were the jobs gained or lost?
