A $4 billion solar-powered power plant with a designed installed capacity of more than 1,000 megawatts was groundbreaking in Blythe, southern California, and is expected to be completed in 2013. According to the California government, the construction of the solar power station has been second to none in the world.

The Bryce solar power plant covers an area of ​​about 2,800 hectares and is built on desert land. The huge concave mirror array converts sunlight into heat to heat the steam and drive the turbine to generate electricity. Power plant developer US Solar Trust said that the project will be built in two phases, each with an installed capacity of 500 megawatts. After completion, the electricity generated will be enough for 750,000 homes.

Solar power generation not only depends on the sun, but also occupies a large amount of land. In the southern part of California, there is plenty of sunshine and there are many desert land with low commercial value, which is suitable for the development of solar power stations. Previously, nine small solar power stations have been built in the vicinity, with a total installed capacity of 354 megawatts, and a solar power plant under construction has an installed capacity of 370 megawatts. The installed capacity of Bryce Solar Power Station is close to a nuclear power plant.

The California government plans to make renewable energy account for 33% of all California energy consumption by 2020. The construction of Bryce's solar power plants has made California an important step toward this goal.
