Problem Description

The goal of this project is develop a cost benefit model that takes into account not only the base dollar economics of this type of development, but also the net dollar impact ie; the total value of every dollar spent within the local community from direct, indirect and imputed project development and construction expenditures; new tax revenues; new land/property owner revenues (land leases, royalty payments); potential community enhancements such as ecotourism; and new university and community college research and curriculum program.  Additionally, the study should provide both quantitative and qualitative values related to the social, environmental and economic impacts this type of project could have. Environmental impacts may include the offset impacts of relative to water consumption and carbon emissions for equivalent thermal generation.
