BrightSource Energy will provide almost a thousand megawatts of renewable energy to Nevada and California from solar thermal generating stations on a site owned by the Coyote Springs Land Company in Nevada. This is an expanded land use agreement from a previously executed arrangement. The site will deploy BrightSource's technology, the Luz Power Tower, which integrates thousands of small mirrors, or heliostats, to aim sunlight at the tower producing high temperature steam to generate power via a turbine. ...
... "The size of the site has now expanded to include a twelve-square-mile area within the larger Coyote Springs development in Lincoln County. The site is located on private property near transmission lines and, as part of the broader development site, has already received environmental permits from the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife and various other federal, state and county agencies. The power generated from the Coyote Springs site could meet demand generated in the Coyote Springs development, southern Nevada, as well as deliver power to California. Located northeast of Las Vegas, the Coyote Springs development will also include several residential and commercial components.
