Project Vitals

Location: San Bernardino County, CA

Technology: Solar Thermal Parabolic Trough

Electricity production capacity: 250 megawatts

Company: Mojave Solar LLC (Victorville, California)

The project is expected to:

  1. Generate enough electricity to power approximately 75,000 – 187,500 homes

  2. Create up to 830 construction jobs and 60 permanent jobs

  3. Have an estimated construction payroll of $272 million and spend an estimated $121 million locally on construction materials and equipment

  4. Secure approximately $1.2 billion through DOE's Recovery Act loan guarantee program

  5. Be located on 1,765 acres of private land, with 17 miles of fiber optic lines crossing public lands.

The 250 megawatt Abengoa Mojave Solar Project will be located on private land in San Bernardino County. Interconnection with the CAISO grid will require upgrades to the transmission system that crosses public lands.
