Crescent Dunes Solar Plant

Occupying a large portion of 4 sections of land, the 600-foot solar power generating facility located northwest of the city of Tonopah, Nye County, Nevada, will provide renewable energy for Nevada for decades. The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project will utilize 10,000 heliostats in an array on the ground focused at the top of the central receiver tower and the advanced molten salt system technology to generate electricity 24 hours a day.

This project was recently named the winner of ENR Southwest 2014 Best Project in the category of Energy/Industrial.
