SPOTLIGHT ON THE PAST
FOSS & COMPANY'S FIRST RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECT
LUZ SOLAR ELECTRIC GENERATING SYSTEM - APRIL 1986
Solar Electric Generating Systems (SEGS) is a concentrated solar power plant in California, United States. With the combined capacity from three separate locations at 354 megawatt (MW), it is the world's second largest solar thermal energy generating facility, after the commissioning of the even larger Ivanpah facility in 2014. This solar energy investment consists of nine solar power plants in California's Mojave Desert, where insolation is among the best available in the United States.
