Clark Energy Group, an affiliate of Clark Realty Capital, says it has been selected to develop the largest solar power project in Department of Defense history at Fort Irwin, Calif.
Joining Clark Energy Group in its efforts to construct and manage the Fort Irwin Solar Energy Enhanced Use Leasing (EUL) project will be Acciona Solar Power of Henderson, Nev. The selection of Clark-Acciona was made by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, EUL program working in partnership with Fort Irwin and the Department of the Army.
The Fort Irwin Solar Energy EUL will entail a flexible, phased, multi-technology approach to delivering up to 1,000 MW of power generation while advancing the transformation of Fort Irwin's overall energy security. The Clark-Acciona proposal features the development of both photovoltaic and concentrated solar thermal technologies on an industrial scale.
The proposed development will ultimately include over 500 MW of solar power that will produce 1,250 GWh of renewable energy per year at Fort Irwin facilities.
