Biden-Harris administration announces full operation of Blythe Solar Power Project

Blythe Solar Power Project will add 387 MW of battery storage to grid that will power nearly approximately 145,500 homes

The Department of the Interior today announced that the Blythe Solar Power Project – a four-unit, 485-megawatt (MW) photovoltaic facility and 387 MW battery energy storage system in Riverside County, California – is now fully operational. The project, which will produce enough energy to power nearly approximately 145,500 homes, represents another major step forward in the Biden-Harris administration’s efforts to lower costs for families and create a clean energy, carbon-free future.

“Bringing another solar project to full operation on our public lands will accelerate our nation’s transition to a clean energy economy by unlocking renewable resources, creating jobs, lowering costs, and boosting local economies,” said Secretary Deb Haaland. “The Interior Department will continue to advance the sustainable development of clean energy in order to help meet the Biden-Harris administration’s goal of 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2035.”
