Mojave SolarĀ One Site Selection

Having grown up in the Mojave desert, seeing the first Solar One demonstration project constructed, I had no idea a second project location was being selected. Who doesn’t like solar power? Well, it’s important to not destroy habitat, and while we need solar power, the environmental considerations for a project done 20 years ago have presumably changed. (Spitballing–I wonder if people are attempting to design floating solar arrays, similar to floating wind farms?)
