In a land agreement that could potentially see the establishment of a solar thermal development up to 600MW in Lincoln County, Nevada, BrightSource Energy, Inc. has revealed that it has reached an agreement on the principal terms of a private land contract with Nevada’s Coyote Springs Land Company, a planned community developer.
The location of the planned project is a six-square-mile area within the larger Coyote Springs development in Lincoln County, just northeast of Las Vegas. Necessary environmental permits from the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife and other federal, state and county agencies have been secured. Energy produced at the site is said to be sufficient to provide for demand in the Coyote Springs development, southern Nevada and California.
