Welcome to Ausra Las Vegas
The World’s Highest Capacity Solar Thermal Power Factory
The advanced production systems in this
facility can manufacture more than 700 megawatts (MW) of electricity generation equipment
"This is a crossover point for this industry," said Fishman. "Ausra's factory is accelerating Nevada's and America's solar future by tripling worldwide manufacturing capacity, relieving the supply constraint that has slowed the industry, and continuing to drive down costs. By a 94 percent majority, the American public wants solar power development to help address rising prices for traditional energy sources. We're ready to respond now with a clean, reliable and cost-competitive energy choice that will be an economic development machine for the country. Here in Southern Nevada alone, developers are planning over $50 billion of future solar power plants."
“At peak production the plant will churn out more than 700 megawatts’ worth of equipment year to keep 1,400 solar power plant construction workers employed. “We can produce a lot faster than what we can install,” says McKay.”
