San Luis Solar Ranch
The San Luis Solar Ranch in southern Colorado is expected to start producing power for the grid in the coming week and be officially commissioned in December. The 110,000 solar panels from SunPower will produce about 30 megawatts, or enough to power 7,500 homes during peak times. The valley has some of the best solar resourcs in the country.
