Changing Perspectives: The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar

Evolution of a Solar Plant, #26, October 15, 2010

The focus of my photographic work over the past three years has been on the development of utility-scale renewable energy in the American West with primary attention given to one project, The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar.

 In October 2010, prior to commencement of construction, I began aerial documentation of the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in the Mojave Desert of California. When complete at the end of 2013, the facility will become the world's largest concentrated solar thermal power plant, producing 377 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 140,000 American homes. Though site and technology specific, the environmental issues and political decisions surrounding Ivanpah Solar are of global relevance.

Sponsored by Blue Earth, a 501c3 non-profit organization, this project seeks to foster a clearer understanding of large-scale renewable energy projects and be a constructive pro-active voice for responsible energy development.
