DOI Approves Seventh Large-Scale Solar Project On Public Lands


U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has approved the Genesis Solar Project, a 250 MW facility that will use parabolic trough solar thermal technology.

Proposed by Genesis Solar LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, the facility will be located on nearly 1,950 acres of public land 25 miles west of Blythe, in Riverside County, Calif. The decision authorized the U.S. Department of the Interior's (DOI) Bureau of Land Management to offer Genesis Solar a right-of-way grant to use these public lands for 30 years if all rents and other conditions are met.
