Look What They Are Doing Here!
Hi! Dylan here. In Blythe, California they are building a solar power plant on 1,800 acres in the Sonoran Desert. More than 500,000 parabolic mirrors will be assembled on that acreage. This power plant is still under construction and is set to be finished in 2014, 30 months after its start date in 2010. The projected electricity generation is about 300,000 Megawatt hour per year. When it is finished it will power a lot of homes and it is in one of the most sunniest places in America so it should have good results. This project is keeping a lot carbon dioxide out of the air by using clean energy. This is Dylan, signing off.
