Solar Project could bring thousands of jobs in Nevada
The new solar project in Tonopah could bring hundreds of jobs to that area, face to face those, John Ralston is reporting that DEO Secretary Steven Chu will make the announcement tomorrow that financing for the project has been approved. Plans call for a one hundred and ten megawatt power point to be built, and Senator Harry Reid has been a big supporter of this project. A project that originally it was rejected by Congress. A major new solar plant, in Nevada, is expected to bring hundreds of new jobs. Senator Harry Reid says the project will be built near Tonopah with a loan guarantee.
From the Department of Energy. It's expected the solar thermal facility will create more than four thousand jobs both directly and indirectly. Starting with six hundred for construction and fortyfive for operations, and once completed it will produce enough energy to power seventy five thousand homes. Six other projects including one in Storey County and one near Gerlach are also moving through the loan process. Senator Harry Reid, along with US Energy Secretary Steven Chu, talked about what this means for our states. The project is expected to create hundreds of jobs, you'll hear about that today. It gives a glimpse into what the future holds for the state of Nevada.

Manmade Wall of Wind Creates Hurricane Force Winds to Test Construction Science Nation
MILES O'BRIEN A category five hurricane is a monster of a storm. These twelve giant fans can create the intensity of a Cat5 hurricane, with 157 mile an hour winds pummeling roof tiles and solar panels. ARINDAM CHOWDHURY When we have twelve of them running together at the full speed, we have 8,400 horsepower. MILES O'BRIEN With support from the National Science Foundation, civil engineer, Arindam Chowdhury and his team at Florida International University and the International Hurricane Research Center, designed this fifteenfoot tall wall of wind, nicknamed, WOW. MAN 1 I'm going to go up now to sixty miles an hour.
MILES O'BRIEN The goal is to see if lowrise structures and building materials can withstand the same wind forces they'd face in a fullblown hurricane. ARINDAM CHOWDHURY We did testing on rooftop equipment and we looked at the loads and based on the results, we send recommendations to the Florida Building Code and those recommendations are now in the Florida Building Code. MILES O'BRIEN Manufacturers work with Chowdhury to test the durability of new products. For example, they want to see if this solar panel will stand up to hurricane force winds.
Sensors measure the pressure on the panel as the wind starts to blow. ROB KORNAHRENS We want to make sure everything stays within the frame. That the whole unit stays on the racking itself. MAN 2 What wind speed MAN 1 It's about 120. MAN 2 Can we flip it around though MILES O'BRIEN A rotating turntable exposes all sides to headwinds. ARINDAM CHOWDHURY Now we can see effects from different angles of the wind and get the data from all directions. ROB KORNAHRENS I don't think we're going to see any damage to.
The panel based on what I saw. It's great. You couldn't get this in any other type of test. MILES O'BRIEN Next stop, some roof tiles and adhesive foam. MAN 3 It's solid as a rock, the way it's installed. That foam really works with this good tile. MILES O'BRIEN Will they withstand WOW's forces ARINDAM CHOWDHURY Right now we're testing 122 miles per hour. MILES O'BRIEN The tiles and foam pass with flying colors. The building itself, not so much. Chowdhury says such foundation failures are rare. But lessons learned here could.
