New solar project to power Texas A&M-Central Texas campus

Posted: Friday, June 28, 2013 12:00 am

The Texas A&M University System has announced the creation of the largest solar test site in the world to power the entire Texas A&M University-Central Texas campus and greatly expedite the development of photovoltaic solar technologies.

The ambitious project was announced in Killeen on Thursday by A&M System Chancellor John Sharp and A&M-Central Texas President Marc Nigliazzo. The university will collaborate with California-based PPA Partners to create the Center For Solar Energy, a $600 million project that will span up to 800 acres in Bell County.

    I PRAY OPENING DAY THAT "The Dell-Winston Solar Challenge Team will be there.


    Did not the investigating commission that was appointed by the Japanese Parliament just concluded, That It was very sadly a Profoundly Man-made Disaster that Could and Should have Been Foreseen and at all cost been Prevented.” This commission dose hold the Japan Government, Regulators and its Nuclear Owners and Operators Responsible for the Meltdown that occurred at Fukushima, after a Powerful Earthquake that generated a Large Tsunami that struck the country’s northeast coast in March of the year 2011.

    This Plant was built by "GE" or know as "General Electric" A American Company and there are 23 of them in America just like the one they built at Fukushim Japan. At least one in the state of Illinois. Thank GOD Illinois does not have a lot of Earthquakes. Yet ? and are the 23 power plants that are built just like the Fukushima one Safe of the 100+ Nuclear Power Plants in the United States of America??? Or are they a Disaster looking to come?

    There is enough Energy coming from our SUN in a day to power all our needs on Earth for for a long time.
    Solar Energy is Safe and Clean and Can Power All Are Needs and much more.

    There is enough Energy coming from our SUN in a day to power all our needs on Earth for for a long time.
    This was told by two men 100 years ago and 2,242 years ago.
    Told by most all Scientist that these two men were of the World s most smartest men to ever live on Earth they were Mathematician, Physicist, Engineer, Scientist and Inventors of many things "Archimedes and Albert Einstein".

    The smartest to ever to walk on Earth was are Lord Jesus Christ.

    So why on Earth is anyone still looking at Dirty, Unsafe or Disastrous Energy like Oil, Coal and Nuclear Power Plants.

    These two are at the top of the list of the World’s Greatest Scientists,
    Viewed by Scientist around the World.

    Sad that for the last 25 years or so of every teacher asked no matter what
    Grade k through 16. At least 80% of them did not know Archimedes. Even sadder 90%
    of them could not tell you what one of the most Brilliant Scientist to ever
    live on Earth. Won the Nobel Prize for.

    It was for the work Albert Einstein did to show the World it could get
    Free Energy, Electric from the SUN. (THE PHOTOVOLTAIC EFFECT).

    GOD Bless
    all that spotlight SOLAR ENERGY
