November’s event is a very special opportunity to learn about a major solar project in our backyard, BrightSource’s Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS) in construction near Primm, NV. Solar NV thanks the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for orgainzing this meeting! Members from both groups and the public will be in attendance.
Todd Stewart P.E., BrightSource’s Senior Director for Project Development, is our guest speaker. BrightSource’s main office is in Oakland, CA, however as a fellow engineer Todd is visiting for our event – please come to this rare opportunity!

ISEGS is a 3-plant, 392-megawatt solar complex using mirrors to focus the power of the sun on solar receivers atop power towers. The electricity generated by all three plants is enough to serve more than 140,000 homes in California during the peak hours of the day. The complex is located in Ivanpah, about five miles from the California-Nevada border, on federal land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The project – which counts RG Solar, Google and BrightSource as equity investors – is currently the largest solar plant under construction in the world. The project is being constructed by Bechtel.

We hope to see you at this special event! It is open to the public.
