NRG Energy, eSolar To Develop 92 MW Solar Plant

0

El Paso Electric has signed a power purchase agreement for the output of a 92 MW concentrating solar power plant to be developed in southern New Mexico by NRG Energy and eSolar. The project is part of NRG's and eSolar's plans to develop up to 500 MW of solar thermal power in California and the Southwest.

When fully operational in the summer of 2011, the plant is expected to be the first commercial-scale solar thermal project in New Mexico. The site for the development is a 450-acre property near Sunland Park, N.M., about 10 miles from El Paso, Texas.
