Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. CWET 0.00% (the “Company”) announced today that on May 23th, 2012 the City Council of San Luis, Arizona held a second and final hearing on the zoning and voted unanimously in favor of zoning a parcel of land within the San Luis City limits for the construction of Clean Wind Energy’s innovative green renewable energy Downdraft Tower Facility. In a separate and additional action, the City Council approved an agreement for protected development rights with Clean Wind Energy, Inc., paving the way for the entitlement to develop a second Tower on the subject property.
This alternative energy project will bring significant employment opportunities and economic stimulus to San Luis, Arizona and a number of U.S. industries. The Company anticipates that during the Downdraft Tower’s construction phase, 2,500 construction and transportation jobs and 1,000 manufacturing jobs will be created. Once placed in service, each Tower should generate 1,000 permanent jobs. The San Luis location incorporates plans for two (2) Downdraft Towers and a component parts Assembly Plant.
As designed, the Company anticipates that each Downdraft Tower could generate enough electricity to power up to 1,600,000 homes using the guidelines set forth in the California Statewide Residential Appliance Saturation Study, 2004. As an independent power producer of clean renewable energy, the Company will not be selling power directly to consumers but rather to the grid.
Previously targeted as a prime region for alternative energy projects, San Luis is an ideal location for Clean Wind Energy to build this innovative alternative energy facility because this region of the southwest United States provides the proper weather profiles, proximity to the power grid, and other ingredients beneficial to the operation of a Downdraft Tower.
About Clean Wind Energy, Inc. Clean Wind Energy, Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc, has designed and is preparing to develop, and construct large “Downdraft Towers” that use benevolent, non-toxic natural elements and operate with virtually no carbon footprint, fuel consumption, or residual waste to generate electricity and clean water economically by integrating and synthesizing numerous proven as well as emerging technologies. This technology will generate clean, cost effective and efficient electrical power without the damaging effects caused by using fossil or nuclear fuels, and other conventional power sources.
The Company’s core objective and focus is to become a provider of clean efficient green energy to the world communities at a reasonable cost without the destructive residuals of fossil fuel, and to help broker the chasm between both, while continuing to generate innovative technological solutions for today and tomorrow’s electrical power needs. In addition to constructing Downdraft Towers in the United States and abroad, the Company intends to establish partnerships at home and abroad to propagate these systems and meet increasing global demand for clean water and electricity. Clean Wind has assembled a team of experienced business professionals, engineers and scientists with access to the breakthrough energy research upon which this technology is founded and the proven ability to bring the idea to market. Clean Wind Energy, Inc. has filed several patents that the Company believes will further enhance this potentially revolutionary technology. Clean Wind Energy, Inc. is based in Annapolis MD, and is traded on the OTCBB under the symbol ‘CWET.’ For more information visit http://www.cleanwindenergytower.com
