Live Webcast of Acciona's Nevada Solar One plant dedication

Acciona's co's Nevada Solar One thermal solar plant went live during the summer of 2007. At 64 megawatts, it is the 3rd largest solar power plant in the world. Right now there is a live webcast of the dedication ceremony which will be followed by a press conference. You can watch it all here. One of the amazing feasts of this accomplishment is that it took only 16 months to complete the plant.

This event marks what I hope is the beginning of our movement towards large scale solar power projects, as Acciona has already announced that it is planning to open up a 200 MW plant out west, which the Spanish firm expects to be completed at some point in the year 2010.

Coincidentally (or not), earlier today the state of Arizona's largest public utility company, Arizona Public Service, announced plans to build an even larger solar thermal power plant about 70 miles southwest of Phoenix. The price tag for the 240 MW plant is expect to be around one billion US dollars.

Good news for solar power but we still need more:

from the EIA

"Summer peak demand (noncoincident) grew to 789,475 megawatts (MW), 4.0 percent higher than the peak in 2005, and 12.1 percent higher than in 2004. Net generation of electric power during June, July and August 2006 increased by 0.9 percent from the previous summer."

May need to keep pushing the nucs

He'll be leading a Solar Thermal discussion along with the CEO's of BrightSource, Abengoa and Grupo Santander. Visit http://www.REFFWallStreet.com to learn more.
