Other info: 

The proposed Palmdale project would have a net electrical output of 570 megawatts (MW)

Primary equipment for the generating facility would include two natural gas-fired combustion turbine-generation (CTGs) rates at 155 MW each, two heat recovery steam generators (HRSFs), one steam turbine-generator (STG) rated at 260 MW, and 250 acres of parabolic solar-thermal collectors with associated heat transfer equipment. The solar-thermal collectors would contribute up to 50 MW of the STG’s output.

General comments:

The project was approved by California Energy Commission in August 2011. Construction must commence within five years from approval date.

As of the date of approval, the project does not have a PPA
