SLV Solar Spotlights

Saguache County Commissioners recently approved a sprawling 6,200-acre solar complex proposed by Santa Monica, California-based SolarReserve. It is to be located 30 miles north of Alamosa and 10 miles west of Great Sand Dunes National Park.

“We got a traffic-stopper,” said board Chairman Mike Spearman, according to The Denver Post. He said he hopes the site will become a tourist attraction, complete with a visitor center and shuttle tours.

In addition, the solar plant being built near Alamosa by North Carolina-based Cogentrix LLC – a Goldman Sachs-owned power company – is almost complete.
