Phase 2 of Nevada Geothermal Power Plant Begins Commercial Operations

Phase 2 of Don A. Campbell geothermal power plant begins commercial operations

The second phase of Don A. Campbell geothermal power plant began commercial operations Sept. 17.

Ormat Technologies CEO Isaac Angel says the project in Mineral County, Nevada, which broke ground 10 months ago, is six months ahead of schedule.  The first phase began operations in December 2013.

Angel says the second phase doubled the geothermal complex’s generating capacity.  The facility is expected to generate 19 MW a year.

Southern California Public Power Authority has a 20-year power purchase agreement for the entirety of the plant’s output, which is sold exclusively to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
