California’s California solar projects to be located at an oil field

The Belridge Solar project will consist of an 850MW solar thermal facility, producing 12mn barrels of steam per year, and a 26.5MW photovoltaic facility that will generate electricity. The solar-generated steam and electricity will reduce natural gas currently used onsite in oilfield operations. The facility is projected to save more than 376,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, offsetting the equivalent of 80,000 cars.
