Acciona Dedicates 64 MW Nevada Solar One Plant


Acciona has formally dedicated Nevada Solar One, the company's 64 MW concentrating solar power plant based in Boulder City, Nev.

At a gathering last week, leading scientists, environmentalists, federal and state public officials, and key industry executives celebrated the viability of commercial-scale concentrating solar power production in the U.S. and the success of the world's largest concentrating solar power plant to be built in more than 16 years, the company says.

Spread over 400 desert acres, the Nevada Solar One plant uses a parabolic trough design that employs 182,000 curved mirrors to track and concentrate the sun's rays.
