This is what Saudi Arabia’s 100-mile long emission-free smart city could look like | Engadget

In 2021, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman revealed the country’s plans to build The Line, a smart linear city that will be constructed vertically, have no roads or cars and run purely on renewable energy. Now, the Saudi government has released image renders of what The Line could look like once it’s done. The city was designed to only be 200 meters (656 feet) wide, but 500 meters (1,640 feet) tall and 170 kilometers (105 miles) long. It will house multiple communities encased in a glass facade running along the coast and will eventually be able to accommodate up to 9 million residents. The Line’s designers envision a city wherein facilities are just a five-minute walk away from people and where residents can organically bump into each other as they go about their daily errands. While it will have no roads and won’t be able to accommodate cars, it will have a high-speed rail for end-to-end transit that will take 20 minutes. It will also rely on a natural ventilation system to make sure residents enjoy the ideal climate all year round.

Island-Wide Blackout Sweeps Puerto Rico After Power Plant Fire

A fire that broke out at the Costa Sur power plant in Puerto Rico late Wednesday forced an island-wide outage, the biggest blackout this year so far due to an ailing electric grid. Power may not be restored to some parts of the island until Friday, according to Puerto Rico’s electricity grid operator.

The exact cause of the fire remains unclear, but it began around 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday at the power plant located just outside the town of Guayanilla on the southwest coast. It cut power across the island, where more than a million people are still without electricity.

About 160,000 people were also left without water, according to NBC News. So far, power has been restored to about 80,000 of the island’s 1.4 million energy consumers, according to government officials.“The system is being restored little by little,” Kevin Acevedo, a vice president of Luma, told the Associated Press. “The people of Puerto Rico have to understand that it’s a system with a lot of years. Bringing back Puerto Rico’s system is a delicate and complicated process.” read more below
