The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System is located just south of Primm, Nevada near the Ivanpah Dry Lake in California. This behemoth of a project spans approximately 3,500 acres on federal land and is owned by NRG Energy, Google, and BrightSource Energy. Once complete, the Ivanpah project will be the largest solar thermal power tower system in the world. The contrast between the technology and the primitive desert surroundings was truly worth the effort to photograph.
