Located on 3,600 acres of U.S. BLM managed land in southeastern California, the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS) is a 392 megawatt (gross) solar thermal power facility developed by BrightSource Energy.

When constructed, Ivanpah will be the first large-scale solar thermal project built in California in nearly two decades, and the largest in the world.  The Ivanpah Solar Energy Generating System will nearly double the amount of commercial solar thermal electricity produced in the United States today and nearly equal the amount of total solar installed in the United States in 2009 alone.
