Ivanpah Solar Plant
Mojave Desert, CA
This project involves three solar concentrating thermal power plants. Each 100 megawatt site will require approximately 850-acres (or 1.3 square miles) and will have three tower receivers and arrays; the 200 megawatt site will require approximately 1,600-acres (or 2.5 square miles) and will have 4 tower receivers and arrays. The total area required for all three phases will include the administration building/operations and maintenance building and substation and is approximately 3,400-acres (or 5.3 square miles). The plants will share the common facilities mentioned above including access roads and the reconductored transmission lines for all three phases.
