USA, Nevada: Beautiful Video of Enel's Hybrid CSP/PV Geothermal Power Plant

Enel Green Power’s hybrid power plant in the USA (enelvideo)

Note in the video the bigger footprint of the 26 MW of Solar PV and 17 MW of CSP arrays compared to the 33 MW of geothermal power plant

Last year, Enel Green Power North America Inc. (EGP-NA) added a 17 MW trough-based concentrating solar power (CSP) component to its existing 33 MW Stillwater geothermal power facility in Churchill County, Nevada, USA.

Enel's hybrid plant was built in the USA, with a combination of various renewable sources, namely the generation capacity of geothermal, solar PV and thermodynamic power coexisting on the same site. A mix of different technologies that can achieve cutting-edge solutions for energy production.
