Final Environmental Impact Statement Issued for 200-MW Moapa Solar Project

Concentrating solar power (CSP) technology focuses sunlight to receivers where the heat is used to produce steam that creates electricity via a conventional steam turbine generator. The CSP technology being proposed for one alternative is the AREVA CSP technology which utilizes the Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR) system. In another alternative, instead of the AREVA CSP technology, the eSolar CSP technology and solar field would be used. The eSolar CSP power technology uses many small, flat heliostats focused to reflect sunlight onto receivers mounted on towers. The receivers are essentially traditional high-efficiency boilers that generate steam and provide it to a conventional steam turbine power block. The eSolar design is modular, currently with a standard plant size of 46 MW composed of 12 receivers and two subfields of heliostats per receiver. The Moapa Solar ...
