Clean Wind Energy Tower prepares to enter energy market in Mexico

Source: Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc.

Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc., formally Clean Wind Energy Tower,  has signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") to enter into a Definitive Agreement to purchase a 3,200 acre site in Mexico that has the ideal attributes required for the company's Downdraft Tower, an alternative energy project currently under development.

Clean Wind intends to build and operate two Downdraft Towers on this site. The proposed property is located in a particularly exceptional area for the development of these projects as it possesses suitable access, along with the required topography.

Both Clean Wind and the current land owner have been in discussions regarding this project since the later part of 2011 and are working together diligently under the LOI towards the execution of a Definitive Agreement.

The land purchase is subject to the seller providing clear title and unrestricted access to the property as well as acquiring all of the needed prerequisites and approvals for the implementation of the Downdraft Towers including access to the power grid and the company securing a satisfactory Power Purchase Agreement. 

The Downdraft Tower is a hollow cylinder with a water spray system at the top. Pumps deliver water to the top of the Downdraft Tower to spray a fine mist across the entire opening. The water evaporates and cools the hot dry air at the top. The cooled air is denser and heavier than the outside warmer air and falls through the cylinder at speeds up to and in excess of 50 mph, driving the turbines located at the base of the structure. The turbines power generators to produce electricity.

In geographic areas where atmospheric conditions are conducive, the exterior of the Downdraft Tower may be constructed with vertical “wind vanes” that capture the prevailing wind and channel it to produce supplemental electrical power. This dual renewable energy resource enhances the capability and productivity of the Clean Wind system.
