Negotiations continue between the two parties to contract for the world's first solar heat collection system, bladeless turbine and ancillary systems. TRC will own and operate the $360 million dollar solar electric plant constructed by IAS.

The plant will operate year round at a site in Arizona, and is expected to be placed in service by the end of 2004.

We are very excited about our technology and the opportunity to work with TRC," said Neldon Johnson, President of IAS.
