To enter the site you must have an OSHA 10 certification (which I do) and take a 2 Contractor Safety Orientation which you book and get an on-line ticket like a concert...they also contact your HR to verify the level of your background check, when I started at this company 7 years ago I had to compile a background time line that went back to High School graduation...fortunately a lot of stuff from the seventies and the eighties didn't make it into the data bases... :mrgreen:

My day was a real amazing day, went to my 2 hour orientation and signed a very detailed non disclosure agreement in which I cannot name where I was or that I was there... :? ...or what goes on there... :shock:

So I guess I can't say much about the amazingness of it all, but I can say what is publicly known... :arrow: ...The site will eventually be a single structure of 16 million sq. feet, with a roof area of approximately 6 million sq. feet which will be all solar panels, in addition there will be added 2 wind farms to augment the one already built and the site will have a zero emissions footprint when completed and employ 20,000 people, this will be the worlds largest single structure and the largest site in the world with no emissions... :!:

I really wish I could go into greater detail but anyone who has seen large building operations could easily imagine the enormity of it all but woud probably still need to expand what they imagine by factor of 10 or 20 minimum...it is just unbelievable... :idea:

BTW in a Google like move they serve a lot of free drinks (non alcoholic) , snacks, and have super cheap meals... :o

If he had the building it wouldn't be clean energy, it would be powered by the world's largest dumpster fire... :mrgreen:

Made it home, it was a white knuckler most of the way, torrential rain in Nevada and going up the mountain, snow on the summit and coming down to Immigrant Gap...horrific roll over with obvious injuries at Cisco Grove...battled rain on Highway 20 almost all the way to Grass Valley...but I am home safe!... :D
