Launch of world’s largest PV plant drives home the pro-ITC message

world’s largest PV plant

Agua Caliente, one of the five projects that received support from the DOE’s loan guarantee program.

US interior secretary Sally Jewell yesterday flipped the switch on Desert Sunlight, the 550MW PV power plant built by First Solar that for a few months at least will be the world’s largest.

Jewell attended a ceremony at the Riverside County, California site, during which the vast project was officially inaugurated.

The US Department of Energy marked the occasion by publishing a report yesterday highlighting the key role played by its Loan Programs Office (LPO) in supporting the first wave of ultra-large utility-scale solar plants in the US.

Desert Sunlight is the last project to reach completion of a batch five plus-100MW utility PV plants that were supported by the LPO through a US$4.6 billion loan guarantee programme.
