The city of the future, or a green ghost town? Pegasus Global Holdings, a development company, has secured a 20 square mile tract of land in New Mexico to build a brand new city. The catch is that absolutely no one will live there. Pegasus is using the faux-city to test ‘green’ infrastructure and technologies in a realistic setting – testing new technologies and how they would be applied to use in the real world. Research groups, educational institutes, and the government can share the city and see how to make some of our best planet friendly ideas and make them into reality. Over time, they can see how to design and implement changes such as installing Smart Grids, updating and installing communication systems, and making a sustainable area to live.
Remember how you wanted to live like the Jetsons? Well you still can’t!
