Palmdale Hybrid Power Plant

This page provides information on Palmade Hybrid Power Plant, a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, with data organized by background, participants, and power plant configuration. The Victorville 2 Hybrid power project uses the same proven solar technology used in the solar power plant owned by the Florida Power & Light just 15 miles north of the City of Victorville. This facility is known as “SEGS 01”, and is one of three separate sites within 40 miles of one another which make up a total of nine solar fields in the Solar Electric Generating System (SEGS). Together these three facilities can generate about 354 megawatts at peak output, comprising most of the commercial solar power currently produced worldwide.
