The world’s first solar-geothermal plant will have an installed capacity of 89 MW. The technological combination will be used to increase the facility’s present peak capacity (65 MW), adding 24 MW to its capacity and also creating 150 new jobs.
Thanks to their innovative technology, both StillWater and Salt Wells binary cycle plants have been allocated incentives for over 60 million dollars, within the stimulus plan that the American President Barack Obama has enacted to promote clean energy.
With more than 70 plants and an installed capacity of about 800 MW, EGP-NA operates in 20 US States and three Canadian Provinces, and is one of the only energy companies that manages different technologies.
Also in the USA, in 2008 EGP-NA built Smoky Hills in Kansas, EGP’s largest wind farm in the world. With 155 turbines and an installed capacity of 250 MW, Smoky Hills provides energy to 85,000 US households, saving 750,000 tons of CO©ü.
