Why Gila Bend Could Be Pioneering The Future For U.S. Solar

Posted: 09.06.2010

Pacific Blue Energy Corp. (OTCBB: PBEC), announced today that the city of Gila Bend, Arizona
has shown them a commitment to fast-track a 150 Megawatt solar farm on about 100 acres of land there. Claiming favorable permitting laws, and more importantly… “strong support from town officials and staff” they’re going to be able to expedite the Phase 1 approvals for the project in just two to four months. This is an amazing feat considering that many solar installations of this scale can get stuck in red tape and generally sit for at least two years.

Is the U.S. finally getting serious about it’s commitment to solar electricity? Maybe this is a sign that we’re doing just that. Also, this underscores one of the most important things to know about solar. The fact that the value of adding more solar power to our infrastructure and creating a clean energy economy based on solar and other technologies is favored across party lines.
