    Raser begins drilling at New Mexico geothermal site

    Utah-based geothermal developer Raser Technologies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: RZTI), has begun drilling its first production well at its second geothermal power project, Lightning Dock in New Mexico.

    The company said today that once complete, it expects the Lightning Dock project to produce 15-megawatts of renewable power available for sale.

    Raser is developing the Lightning Dock project through a financing agreement with Evergreen-FE Lightning Dock, LLC, a collaboration between the FE Clean Energy Group and Evergreen Clean Energy, LLC.

    Reno-based Ormat Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ORA), is to provide the engineering, procurement and construction services for the project.

    The Lightning Dock project company also recently partnered with John Hancock to apply for a Department of Energy (DOE) loan guarantee through the Financial Institutional Partnership Program (FIPP) under Section 1705 of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act as an option for long term financing of the Lightning Dock project.

    Raser’s Director of project Development, Mike Hayter said today: “We are excited to move forward with our development plans for Lightning Dock, a joint venture between FE Clean Energy Group and Raser Technologies.

    “We have spent the last several months studying data from a well we recently re-entered and from several additional surveys, including a magnetotellurics (MT) survey, which is an electromagnetic geophysical method used to image the Earth’s subsurface. We feel confident that the data collected thus far indicates a promising geothermal resource,” added Mr Hayter.

    Raser currently has one operating geothermal power plant in southern Utah and eight active and early stage projects in four western United States – Utah, New Mexico, Nevada and Oregon.

    The company said it is also exploring the development of solar and wind power on its existing land portfolio.

    Arizona firm to develop 1,500-acre wind and solar farm

    GWS Technologies, Inc. (Pink Sheets: GWSC), has begun design and engineering on a proposed 1,500 acre commercial wind and solar farm under development on the Colorado Plateau northeast of Flagstaff, Arizona.

    Phase I of the project consists of wind turbines and solar panels combining wind and solar generating capability which will allow electrical generation during almost any weather conditions and mitigate spikes in energy production.

    The Department of Energy’s Wind Program and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have published a wind resource map for the state of Arizona which indicates that Arizona has wind resources consistent with utility-scale production.

    The larger contiguous areas of good-to-excellent resources are located in northern and eastern Arizona close to the eastern edge of the Mogollon Rim.

    The Mogollon Rim is a topographical and geological feature which defines the southwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau.

    The Colorado Plateau is a region geologically and topographically distinct from other parts of the Western United States, and is actually a huge basin ringed by highlands and filled with many individual plateaus.

    Sprawling across southeastern Utah, northern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico, and western Colorado, the Colorado Plateau province covers a land area of 130,000 square miles. Of America’s 50 states, only Alaska, Texas, California, and Montana are larger.

    In addition to untapped wind energy potential, the Colorado Plateau is a region with some of the best solar conditions in the United States.

    GWS Technologies plans to develop its projects in phases ranging from 10-20 MW.

    The Scottsdale-based company develops wind and solar farms through joint ventures with landowners and investors.

    Its business model is to develop utility-scale electrical generating facilities through the design, planning/zoning, site and facility construction, and installation of wind turbines and solar arrays on suitable properties which generate electricity that can be sold to end-users and utility companies, allowing the company to participate in long-term power purchase agreement revenues.

    Here Enterprises Inc

    (Public, PINK:HRTE)

    EW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/11 -- Here Enterprises, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HRTE), a developer of clean wind energy, today announced they will be using Collier Services, Inc. to build Phase I of their Floresville, Texas property.

    Here Enterprises is engaged in all aspects of generating clean wind energy in the US. Wind power should continue to fuel the "Green Energy" push in the United States; it currently produces over 40,000 MW annually with projections to be at over 45,000 MW at the end of 2011. Texas, if it were a standalone country, would be sixth on the list of highest wind producing countries.

  • PWER 9.20$


    Jefferies is out with its report on Power-One (NASDAQ: PWER), initiating PWER at Buy.

    In a note to clients, Jefferies writes, "We initiate coverage of Power-One with a Buy rating and $12 PT. We introduce our modestly below-consensus FY11 revenue/GAAP EPS estimates of $1.2B/$1.05 and FY12 estimates of $1.3B/$1.21. We believe large scale inverters will drive PWER growth in Europe, Asia, and NA. Buy especially on weakness; volatility will ensue until the company can confirm a resumption of its sequential growth. The stock will remain under pressure until it can guide to growth."

    At the time of posting, shares of PWER were trading at $9.20, up 1.88% from Thursday's close.
