Permit issued for solar project using molten salt
SolarReserve, a California solar power company, said today "that it has received permit approvals from the Arizona Corporation Commission, for the firm's 150 megawatt Crossroads Solar Energy Project. The firm said the final approval includes a transmission line to connect the project to Arizona Public Service's transmission grid. SolarReserve said the project will supply approximately 450,000 megawatt hours of green energy to Arizona. The firm is using technology developed by Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, which uses molten salt to store solar energy."
The plant will be built just west of Gila Bend.
