Imagine a tower as tall as two Empire State Buildings that can produce as much energy as the Hoover Dam at a price competitive with natural gas.

This spring, Solar Wind Energy Tower (SWET) secured an agreement with the town of San Luis, Arizona, located on the Mexico border, to build the $1.5 billion project. If ever completed, it would become the tallest structure in North America and the second tallest structure in the world after the Burj Khalifa.
