Chevron Mining Completes CPV Installation In New Mexico

Chevron Mining Inc. (CMI), a subsidiary of Chevron Corp., and sister company Chevron Technology Ventures, a division of Chevron U.S.A., have begun operation of a 1 MW concentrated PV solar facility located on the tailing site of CMI's molybdenum mine in Questa, N.M.

The company says this project will demonstrate and evaluate an emerging solar technology and a practical use of previously impacted land. The solar field covers approximately 20 acres and includes 173 solar trackers, each about 18 feet by 21 feet in size, manufactured by Soitec.

Electricity produced will be sold to Kit Carson Electric Cooperative through a power purchase agreement.
