Riiiiggghhttt! The formerly known Millennium and Palen projects were supposed to be CSP which could accommodate heat storage technology. This type of solar generation could provide some stability to the grid during cloudy days and at night when the sun goes down. With the proposed "change" to solar PV, both sites lose their legitimacy. 1.5GW of power by solar PV could power "on average" about 1,000,000 homes. It would be more efficient to put about 2KW peak of solar PV on 1 million homes in California. No, EIRs, no land lease agreements, no "solar" tax from the county added to electric bills and no need for new power corridors. The real estate is on everyone's roof, it just needs to be utilized. Right now, because of the land grading that was done for the Millennium project, every time the wind blows,Blythe gets foul dirty air from the several thousand acres of disturbed earth. Yeah, this is REAL green.
