The McCoy Solar Energy Centers Launch
The McCoy Solar Energy Centers have been commissioned in Riverside County, near Blythe, CA.
The projects, which are in the Mojave Desert, are the result of a $1.2 billion investment. They collectively feature more than 4 million solar panels and trackers. The total generating capacity is 485 MW, which will serve customers of Southern California Edison and healthcare provider Kaiser Permanente, according to The Santa Monica Observer.
The story says that the arrays cover more than 4,000 acres of land, much of which is controlled by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The project will avoid the release of about 774,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
NextEra Energy Resources, which is involved in the project, has been busy. It also is working with the Tennessee Valley Authority to launch the largest solar project in Alabama, according to The News Courier news.
