A solar farm using concentrating solar photovoltaic technology, which combines mirrors and solar PV cells, was recently completed in Hanford, Calif. at the Nichols Farms. It’s a 1 MWsolar project, using technology from SolFocus, and built by Bechtel and developer Sol Orchard.
Check out the photos of this next-gen solar tech. The solar farm will produce 2,244 million kilowatt hours of clean power, using 119 SolFocus solar devices and is connected to the grid via utility Southern California Edison.
