The town, which will be modelled on a town of 35,000 people, will have roads, houses and commercial buildings, but will have no residents.

It will be built in New Mexico about 15 miles west of the nearest town, Hobbs, which has a population of about 40,000.

Scientists hope to use the new 'town' to research innovations in renewable energy as well as intelligent traffic systems and next generation wireless networks.

The investors developing the Centre for Innovation, Technology and Testing (Cite) say they wanted to test the effects of such innovations on a town but without inconveniencing any residents.

It's being built by Pegasus Global?


What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Solyndra: The White House decision to back a California-based maker of advanced solar panels with a $535 million loan guarantee in 2009 looks seedier by the day. By all appearances, this deal and subsequent debacle had more to do with campaign cash and hoodwinking voters than it did with green energy.

It's BO's 'green energy' and jobs plan. Give billions of taxpayer dollars to his supporters. There's many Solyndras out there.
