Cheesy patriotic music and all, BrightSource breaks ground last week in California. Click on the video above to see it.
It’s the moment the world has been waiting for: the Ivanpah solar energy, massive 392-MW solar farm, has broke ground! Being built beside the Ivanpah Dry Lake, in San Bernardino County, California, the plant is now – according to this video – officially under construction. It will be the first site to use BrightSource’s solar thermal concentrating installation to to provide power for 140,000 homes. Set to be active by 2013, the video, and some super-, I mean really cheesy music, shows the official ground-breaking ceremony. I guess BrightSource got around the building-on-native-land-problem that’s recently come to light.
