プロジェクト概要

Located on the northwestern corner of the Carrisa Plains, the 550 megawatt Topaz Solar Farm produces sufficient electricity to power 160,000 average California homes. The Topaz location was selected after an extensive review of potential sites in California which considered the available solar resource, proximity to existing electrical transmission lines, current land uses, and environmental sensitivities. 

Economic benefits include an estimated $417 million in positive impacts, including property and sales tax revenues for the County, wages from direct and indirect employment, induced spending and supply chain revenues.
