The international technology development firm, Pegasus Global Holdings is expanding their testing scope in New Mexico. This Washington, D.C. based technology testing firm will hold the project called The Center which is also known as The Center for Innovation, Testing and Innovation. Basically, the project aims to test green technology outside the corners of the traditional laboratory. This time, they are going to go outside by building an average mid-sized pseudo American town.
Apparently, the uninhabited town will be used to run the tests in new green technology, wireless and traffic technologies in controllable conditions. It will also hold an approximate 20 square miles of combined old and new commercial, residential, suburbs and rural satellite towns. After the project has been completed, the Pegaus will allow the lease of a city to different organizations that include military, university scientists, and federal laboratories, non-profit and private companies. Moreover, the project expects to exert a pull on investors to support the projects tested at its facilities, while the Pegasus themselves proposes to spend $200 million for the completion of The Center.
The newly-elected governor of New Mexico, Susana Martinez expressly states her support for this project. According to her, the project will help the economy of New Mexico and other parts of the country to generate more jobs. It will also boost the local tourism and commercial development of New Mexico. On the other hand, Pegasus upholds New Mexico as an ideal location for the project due to the availability of the land and the open administration under Martinez.
