Huge Blythe Solar Project will Double U.S. Output
(From our sister-blog, Cleantechnica.com)
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced the long-awaited approval of a 1,000-megawatt solar power plant on public lands in the Mojave Desert in southern California yesterday.
This project, which will (temporarily) be the world’s largest solar farm is expected to generate enough clean electricity for over 300,000 homes at peak output. It would more than double all solar output in the U.S.
While it was planned to be the biggest solar project in the world, that distinction may go to an even bigger project recently announced for South Africa.
