Top 5 Solar Projects That We Feel Have The Greatest Chance For Success

Energy is a necessary ingredient in the modern economy. Energy research and innovation could bring massive savings and reduce our ecological footprint, leading us to a solid and sustainable way of living. Here are five solar projects that will soon have a great impact on our lives, and sustainability.

 

1. Cerro Dominador, a solar-thermal plant in the Atacama Desert in Chile

Abengoa has recently obtained a satisfactory environmental rating from the Chilean Environmental Service authorities to establish a solar-thermal plant in the Atacama Desert, using molten salts power technology, with 110 megawatts (MW) capacity. The project, named Cerro Dominador, will be the first solar-thermal plant that will directly produce electricity for South America and it will have an Abengoa-designed and developed thermal storage unit, which means that electricity can be produced for about 18 hours without the sun’s rays. This way, electricity will be supplied in a steady and secure way, for 24 hours a day, meeting all electricity consumption demands.

2. SkyPower Global and FAS Energy will build 3,000 MW solar power in Nigeria

SkyPower FAS Energy is about to meet Nigeria’s growing energy needs. Due to become commercially functional in 2015, the company is set to plan, fund, and construct 3,000 MW utility-scale solar photovoltaic energy projects for the Nigerian power grid.

3. Marubeni Corporation to launch solar power project in Fukushima

Marubeni has begun constructing a solar power project in Fukushima, in Iwaki City. Its capacity is 2,2 MW. The power plant is believed to produce about 2.5 million kWh every year, which is the electricity that 700 ordinary households use annually. Marubeni wishes to utilize such energy sources in the future, in order to reduce the environmental impact of society’s energy consumption.

4. Stateline Solar Farm project in California

The San Bernardino County-based Stateline Solar Farm is expected to generate 300 megawatts of clean, renewable energy, by utilizing photovoltaic technology, for approximately 9,000 households. Aiming at a safe and clean energy future, the Stateline Solar Farm project will include 1,685 acres of public lands, and it will connect to the electrical grid through a 2.7 mile generation-tie transmission line.

5. Silver State Solar South in Nevada

The Silver State Solar South Energy project is a solar energy plant, that if granted by the federal agencies, could produce about 350 MW of clean energy by utilizing photovoltaic technology. This project would power nearly 105,000 homes and enable the State of Nevada to meet its renewable energy demands. The 50 megawatts-construction has been completed, thus making it the first public-land located solar project that would deliver power to the grid.
