World's Largest CSP Plant Completes First Synchronization to Electric Grid in California, an Industrial Info News Alert

A milestone has been reached.
The world's largest concentrating solar power (CSP) project, located in California's Mohave Desert, began generating electricity late last month. On September 24, Unit 1 of the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS) produced its first electricity, which was synchronized to the power grid. That electricity went to Pacific Gas & Electric Company (San Francisco), a unit of PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG) (San Francisco, California).  

This project has been plagued with lawsuits.  Oh, and the cost of those lawsuits will be rolled into YOUR ELECTRIC BILL.
