Amargosa Farm Road Switches From CSP to PV: The planned 500 megawatt Amargosa Farm Road solar project in Nye C...

The planned 500-megawatt Amargosa Farm Road solar project in Nye County, Nevada has been converted to photovoltaic (PV) technology. The change comes as a result of the firm solarhybrid’s acquisition of Solar Millennium’s 2.25-gigawatt project portfolio in the American Southwest. Originally designed as a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, the Amargosa Farm Road plant is expected online by 2014.
