Most people don’t realize that about half of the electricity that heats, lights and powers our homes and businesses comes from this black rock. While it has gotten a pretty bad rap, we offer financing for funding coal mines that offer a great clean energy option. Projects and developments may get up to 100% debt capitalization for the production of this abundant energy source. Most states …

The Kenyan government has moved to secure guarantees for a number of renewable energy projects, to ensure that private lenders sign the necessary cheques. The size of the projects seems excessive, and the guarantees will put pressure on the country’s national accounts.
The Cabinet’s decision to put $209m into an escrow fund to guarantee loans will potentially unlock $1.6bn in funding to go ahead with the energy projects. The two biggest projects in question are Turkana Wind Power, the largest wind farm in sub-Saharan Africa with a capacity of 300MW, and Olkaria 4, Kenya’s biggest geothermal power project, with a 280MW capacity. Other projects are the Aeoulos …
… more than enough solar power falling on the deserts of North Africa to power all of Europe. Recent developments in the fields of concentrated solar power and high voltage direct current cables mean that the power could be harnessed by huge solar arrays, transported across the Mediterranean, and distributed through Europe relatively efficiently.
Twelve European companies have already invested in making the idea a reality and test projects are due to start in Morocco in 2012. By 2013 the group will decide whether the foundation will seek the $600bn necessary to make the project a reality. If so, the initiative could be completed within two years.

… Calif). Projected annual generation is 117-million kWh. This project is part of TXU’s renewable energy program, called “TU Renew”. Customers in the Waco, TX area can designate what percentage of their monthly electricity use is generated by wind power.
Phase I The first phase of the project consists of 46 Vestas wind turbines: 42 V-47 models and four V-66 models. The V-66 units are the largest wind turbines in the Western Hemisphere. They stand 371 feet tall with rotor blades of 216 feet in diameter. Annual energy production of the facility will approximate 117 million Kilowatt-hours of electric energy, enough to power 7300 homes. At their …
