OptiSolar plans 550MW solar farm for San Luis Obispo


OptiSolar has contributed to the state’s aim of sourcing 20% of its
power from renewable sources with the planned establishment of a solar
power farm in San Luis Obispo County. Located on the northwest of the
Clarissa Plains, the 550MW PV farm’s location was selected for its
proximity to power lines, among other factors, and it will provide
sufficient power to run approximately 190,000 average-sized California

Construction on the development will begin in 2010 once approval has been established, while the solar panels will be installed on nine and a half sections of land over a three-year period. The generated power will be fed into California State’s electricity supply system.
