November’s event is a very special opportunity to learn about a major solar project in our backyard, BrightSource’s Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS) in construction near Primm, NV.

Todd Stewart P.E., BrightSource’s Senior Director for Project Development, is our guest speaker. BrightSource‘s main office is in Oakland, CA, however as a fellow engineer Todd is visiting for our event – please cometo this rare opportunity! There will be a follow-up to this meeting with a site tour early next year as the project will be further along by then – another unique event organized specially for you by your section executive board.

Project Overview
ISEGS is a 3-plant, 392-megawatt solar complex using mirrors to focus the power of the sun on solar receivers atop power towers. The electricity generated by all three plants is enough to serve more than 140,000 homes in California during the peak hours of the day. The complex is located in Ivanpah, about five miles from the California-Nevada border, on federal land managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

The first project that will deliver power to serve the company’s signed contracts with PG&E and Southern California Edison. The project – which counts NRG Solar, Google and BrightSource as equity investors – is currently the largest solar plant under construction in the world. The project is being constructed by Bechtel.

See you at this special event!
