30 MW Solar PV Power Plant Being Developed In California By Abengoa

The Madrid-based renewable energy giant EDP Renovaveis is currently in the early stages of developing a new 30 MW solar PV power plant project to be located in San Bernardino County in California.

The project — which represents the Spanish engineering group’s most recent move into the American market — will be designed and built by the noted multinational energy giant Abengoa.

The project will generate enough electricity to provide 5,000 or so residential homes in the area with power — adding to the state’s rapidly growing renewable energy infrastructure, and helping to reduce dependence upon fossil fuels, as well as helping to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

For a bit of background — the primary shareholder of EDP Renovaveis is the Lisbon-based utility company Energias de Portugal, SA (EDP). The EDP Group is the largest industrial group in Portugal, and one of the most prominent energy companies in the whole of Europe. It currently ranks as the third-biggest energy operator on the Iberian peninsula and holds a number of different business interests in the fields of energy generation, distribution, and supply on the peninsula.

In related news, Abengoa is currently working on the construction of a 265 MW solar photovoltaic power plant in California known as Mount Signal. The project is being constructed for AES Solar.

These projects follow up on Abengoa’s completion of the impressive (and now online) 280 MW Solana Solar Thermal Generating Station in Arizona.
