Don't just take our word for it- check the news. There is a huge, global need for Red Gopher's innovative technology, and implications like accessible clean energy will improve our lives and communities. Read on for evidence from news sources and scholarly articles.
Note that Red Gopher will begin accepting media requests before our official launch in early 2019.
We Need to Steer Away from Fossil Fuels and Towards Renewable Energy.
We need new electric power lines and/or a clean energy SuperGrid.
According to this grid reliability study article, "Replacing existing nuclear with equivalent wind/solar generation would require large investment in new transmission and additional back-up gas-fired generation and/or storage (Wade Schauer, director for Wood Mackenzie's Americas Power Research).
Current TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine) technology is not quick or cheap enough to build the type of power grid and infrastructure we need.
Current TBM's can bore at a rate of 18.3 meters / day. Red Gopher can bore tunnels at a rate of 1,003 meters /day.
