Genesis Solar (NextEra Energy Sources, LLC)

The Genesis solar energy project was developed by NextEra Energy in collaboration with solar technology and power block providers, Sener and Fluor. The plant is composed of two 125-megawatt parabolic trough technology units. Genesis expects to produce nearly 700 gigawatt-hours of renewable electricity annually from more than 500,000 parabolic mirrors.

Located in Blythe, California, Genesis created 800 construction jobs. Nearly 50 full-time jobs will be created to operate and maintain the facility. With both units online, Genesis will have the capacity to serve more than 60,000 average American homes.

The project received an $852 million partial loan guarantee and leveraged more than $1.2 billion in total project investment.
