Florida Planning Solar-Powered City

In the past couple of years, there have been quite a few plans unveiled around the world for fully sustainable cities and communities that run on a combination of renewable energies, but a new plan for a city in Florida would be the very first completely solar-powered city.

Florida is known for its sunny weather and solar projects have been successful there, so it makes sense that the state would stick to what it knows works. Utility Florida Power & Light is teaming up with Kitson & Partners to develop the buying levitra without a prescription 17,000-acre community called Babcock Ranch that will be near Fort Myers. The entire community will run off of levitra web sites a $300 million, 75 MW solar-powered generator.

The city will have a smart grid that will manage the energy used and generated and residents will have smart home features that allow them to monitor and control their energy use. Electric cars will have access to charging stations throughout the city and the street lamps will be solar powered too.

If this sounds like somewhere you'd like to look here online levitra prescriptions live, you won't have to wait too long to move. Construction on the solar facility begins later this year and the city center will follow next year. The city will eventually include 19,500 homes, 6 million square feet of retail and the best place 5mg levitra light industrial space and 8,000 acres of green space. Beyond all the eco-friendly features of the new community, it also promises 20,000 permanent jobs. It sounds too good to be true, but I hope it isn't.

How many vacant properties does Florida currently have?

First rule of conservation is touchstoneclimbing.com to CONSERVE!
Surely that means using what you already have rather than building more.

Kudos though for the recommended site viagra pfizer canada solar power.

This reminds me of the tesla roadster. Too expensive for most of us, but I'm all for it! Most things worth doing start out expensive like this, but eventually it'll "bleed" down to the rest of discount brand viagra pfizer us. Kind of like how NASA gave us velcro, I think.

I agree with the conserve idea too. Retrofitting some of the vacant properties would probably be a lot less resource intensive. Oh well, at least it's a boost for solar!
