Palen Solar Electric Generating System Status Conference

This event has passed. The event information on this page is for historical purposes only and links may no longer work.


Palen Solar I, LLC (PSI) filed an Application for Certification with the Commission on August 24, 2009, to construct and operate a nominal 500 megawatt (MW) concentrating solar thermal electric power generating facility. The Commission issued a Final Decision approving the Palen Solar Power Project (PSPP) on December 15, 2010 (Order No. 10-1215-19, Final Decision 09-AFC-07). The Final Decision describes the PSPP as a solar thermal project using parabolic trough technology.

On July 16, 2012, the project ownership changed. On December 21, 2012, the current owner, Palen Solar Holdings, LLC (PSH), filed a petition to amend the Final Decision. The amendment would eliminate the use of parabolic trough technology, replacing it with solar "power tower" technology consisting of two solar towers and associated power blocks and heliostat fields. The modified project has been renamed "Palen Solar Electric Generating System" (PSEGS).

On June 10, 2013, the Committee assigned to this matter issued a Revised Scheduling Order that included a Status Conference on August 5, 2013.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Committee assigned to conduct proceedings on the PSEGS has scheduled a public Status Conference to discuss the proposed project as follows:
