Markland Woods - Clean Energy for a Clean City




DEC Update


Dynamo Energy Concerns, the government organization responsible for the generation and distribution of electricity in the Dynamo Dukedom, has completed construction of the 10,000 MWh solar generating station known as 'Helios One'. DEC went with the decision to use solar energy because creates virtually zero pollution and the system can be modified for growth in the future. When the site for Helios One was chosen, four new sets of high tension power lines were built. After everything was completed, DEC officially shut down the two gas fired generating stations known as 'Denki-Electrics One' and 'Denki-Electrics Two.' DEC plans to shut down the coal Fired station in Markland Port known as 'Jolly Burner' as well as the oil powered station known as 'The T. Ellen Oil Plant' located on the Crimson Coast when those facilities near the end of their expected lifespan.


Helios One was built approximately 10km away from the ever expanding community of Pimento Beach. Much of the farm land around the station has been reserved for future electrical facilities growth. The facility can generate up to 10,000 MWh; although it is currently being used at less than 20% of its full capacity.


Due to the Fact that Helios One was built further away from the urban center of Pimento Beach; Two 500kV lines were built from Helios One to a smaller sub station within the city. Although these lines are not very visually pleasing, citizens prefer the site of power lines over the pollution caused by located generating facilities.


When Denki-Electrics Two was being decommissioned near the beach. DEC did not want to redesign the entire local electrical grid. A smaller 50kV line was installed from the main substation and connected to a new terminal substation on the form generating facility land. After the land passed environment protocols, it was redeveloped into a housing complex.
