Desert solar power plant wins approval
SACRAMENTO – More power to solar. Another desert solar power project in the Inland Empire has got the green light.
The California Energy Commission Wednesday approved the construction of the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in San Bernardino County. It is the fourth solar thermal power plant licensed by the Commission the past month.
The 370-megawatt project is among the first commercial solar thermal power plants permitted on federal public land in the U.S. It will be situated on 3500 acres west of Ivanpah Dry Lake near the California-Nevada border.
The project qualifies for federal stimulus funds. (INT)
