Solar Thermal Electric Hybrid Power Plant

Solar MW Energy Inc. and affiliate Ecosystem Solar Electric Corp. has commenced the development of another "jewel" near Barstow's Mojave Desert, San Bernardino County, Southern California.

A nominal in the aggregate of 59.4 megawatt (MW) solar thermal electric hybrid, utility-scale merchant power plant, to be sited on green field land parcel, privately owned by the developer, at the north-west end of Lenwood Road.

Latest design of improved tried-and-true Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology for solar field, consisting of "twin parabolic collectors (mirrors) with twin parabolic tubes (not pipes) receivers" will be implemented, as well as the long overdue 8 hours of storage for off-peak power generation, hybrid to bring reliable 24 hour electricity, which thwarts all others, intermittent in megawatt's power production.

Permitting solar thermal electric hybrid power plants is a year long process which also involves public participation. The proposed facility will support the State of California's goal of increasing the percentage of renewable energy supplies. California Energy Commission, as well as the developer, will seek public participation during the Application for Certification (AFC) proceedings.

This solar plant will close the long chapter of preceding pilot and demonstration projects in Barstow area. The proposed plant will deliver reliable power to over 35, 000 new homes in the entire area, the proposed Native American casinos at the far south end of Barstow, and to the recently designated Barstow's California Enterprise Zone, thus enabling growth of this clean air, free of wildfires and growth oriented community.
