California Solar Power Project Took An Unexpected Turn

But stand on top of the building and youll see solar panels. The solar energy system was installed at Janet Weis Childrens Hospital near Danville last month. Geisinger Health System got a grant from West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund for the project.

El Sewedy Electric to develop solar power plant in Upper Egypt – Yahoo News

El Sewedy formed the Egyptian Company for Solar Energy Development, a subsidiary that it will invest about $75 million in, which will be in charge of developing, funding, owning and running the power plant, the cable maker said in a statement to Egypt’s stock exchange. The plant will be built in Aswan, around 800 km (500 miles) south of Cairo. Egypt is aiming for renewable energy to contribute 20 percent to the country’s overall energy usage by 2020. “El Sewedy will sell the energy produced from the plant to the Egyptian Company for Transporting Energy at a price of 0.1434 for kilowatt per hour,” the company said.

The high-tech solar projects had an estimated price tag of about $2.2 billion, a significantly massive number especially for a failed solar project. The billion-dollar solar project, called Ivanpah, was initiated in Californias Mojave Desert. The primary goal of the solar project was to generate more than a million megawatt-hours of electricity a year, the Wall Street Journal reported . The whole process works like this: mirrors are used to catch rays from the sun, which in turn is used to generate electricity. This entire process is called solar-thermal technology. However, the amount of solar energy generated since the project began 15 months ago has solar power workers disappointed.
