Solar Electric Generating Station III

<BACK

NO.5-1-6


This page provides information on Solar Electric Generating Station III, a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, with data organized by background, participants, and power plant configuration. SEGS III 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.

  • Why thinking small could help reignite the concentrated solar power sector

    Concentrated solar power accounts for only a fraction of the overall green energy market, but recent research suggests smaller-scale designs could help revitalise interest in the sector. We talk to Luis Crespo, president of Protermosolar, Spain’s solar thermal electricity association.With demand for clean, affordable energy spiking around the world, it may seem counterintuitive to suggest that sc
