The plant consists of two 140 MW steam generator/turbine/generator units supplied with heat from a 1,800 acre Solar Collector Field. Unique to the plant is a large thermal storage system that allows it to continue to generate power for up to six hours after sundown.

Crown Solutions’ water treatment process consists of a 4,500 GPM integrated well water and wastewater recovery system including Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies patented ACTIFLO® for softening. The overall system recovery will be in excess of 95%.
