National Solar Power announces 3rd giant PV project in FL

http://www.cleanenergyauthority.com/solar-energy-news/national-solar-announces-giant-pv-project-in-fl-013112/

National Solar Power is continuing in its efforts to catch up with New Jersey’s and California’s solar markets. Last week the company announced its third utility-scale PV farm in the Sunshine State. This time, the company announced plans to build a PV farm in Liberty County, Florida.

It’s the third project the company has announced since September 2011. Its first project is a 400-megawatt PV farm in Gadsden County, Fla. It’s second is a 200-megawatt farm in Hardee County, Fla., which it announced in December 2011.

The company also is looking into developing projects in other southeastern states, according Ryan Banfill, a spokesperson for National Solar.

“The Liberty plant will be up to 100 megawatts in size and represent an up-to-$350-million investment. It’s on some land that’s near where National Solar is planning the farm in Gadsden County,” Banfill said. “It’s like low-index timberland. There are a lot of trees over in that part of Florida.”

2. Giant? My... That's impressive.

So tell me... Comparing the total generation over the course of an average year... would this "giant" plant be in the top ten power generators in the country?

The top 100?

1000?

3. These 3 plants will generate 700 MegaWatts! I love it.

Now we need about 100 more of these announcements and I'll be happy.
