Yesterday, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar signed an order that set aside 676,000 acres of federal land out west for the possibility of developing solar projects.  Of the huge lot, 351,000 acres are located in the Mojave Desert with the cialis soft rest located in areas in California, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and online us viagra Utah.

The land will be studied for the next two years and environmental reviews will be performed to www.transitofvenus.org determine the ability to safely develop large solar projects.  Protected lands are not being considered for these projects.  The proposed areas in California could generate 39,000 to 70,000 MW of electricity and serve millions of homes if fully developed.

This news follows promises by Obama and Salazar to have 10 percent of the nation's electricity coming from renewable sources by 2012 and to have 13 commercial-scale solar projects under construction by the end of 2010.  The two-year study will open up the areas to leasing by private companies and will cost about $22 million.

What safety concerns do they have with solar projects? There aren't even any moving parts!

Is that supposed to be 10 percent of power by 2020, not 2010? Wind and solar are both rising exponentially though, so I would guess we'll have far more than 10 percent by 2020.

Digging, construction, running out the http://dependablehealthcareservices.com/pa/joycejacob/viagra-cost power lines and www.aco.ca roads, effect on the animal habitat and migration routes, effect on erosion and various other things. Or do you think that the industrial sites proposed are going to http://www.toscanalifesciences.info/where-to-find-viagra have absolutely zero effect on where they are placed?

I lot of this land is in the middle of nowhere. I would have thought it would make more sense to select land which is either near large cities or land which is close to existing power lines.

The cost of the power lines will be a major cost of these projects.
