Green Products to the Test

Texas project to put green products to the test

Dec 1, 2010 - "Green" manufacturers and technology companies are stampeding to find a home in a proposed Texas development that will put the water- and energy-saving devices of tomorrow to the test in a real-world urban setting.

Texas A&M University System and a Dallas-area developer are creating a $127 million commercial and residential "incubator" where cutting-edge sensors will monitor data on everything from light bulbs to appliances and toilets.

Companies like General Electric Co, Philips Electronics, Owens Corning, LG Electronics Inc and Kimberly-Clark Corp are lining up to test their products in the proposed Urban Living Laboratory.

The 73-acre site, 15 miles north of downtown Dallas, once used to test new varieties of wheat and cotton, will be developed starting in late 2011. {read rest}
