Solar Electric Generating Station II<BACK
This page provides information on Solar Electric Generating Station II, a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, with data organized by background, participants, and power plant configuration. SEGS II is one of the nine Solar Electric Generating Station plants in California’s Mojave Desert. The combined electric generating capacity of these plants, which use parabolic trough technology, is more than 350 megawatts. The plants operate as Qualifying Facility Independent Power Producers under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act, with a special Standard Offer 2 type of power purchase agreement to Southern California Edison.

The Department of Energy has issued a formal request for information on methods to allow concentrated solar power (CSP) to commercially deploy as cost-competitive energy storage by generating electricity through turbines running on supercritical carbon dioxide, rather than the steam-driven generators used in many existing CSP facilities.CSP has struggled to compete with photovoltaic solar due to h
EPC consortium consisting of two Chinese companies, CGGC of Power China and Supcon Solar will be fully responsible for the technology, engineering and procurement. Separately, Supcon Solar molten salt tower CSP technology and engineering experience will be applied and CGGC, as China's one of largest state-owned power company, will take care of the procurement and construction work.
