The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project is a 110 megawatt solar thermal power project located outside of Tonopah, in the rural deserts of Nevada.  A concentrating solar power (CSP) plant with a central receiver tower and advanced molten salt energy storage technology developed by SolarReserve, Tonopah Solar Energy, LLC. The $1 billion project includes 10,347 heliostats that collect and focus the sun’s thermal energy to heat molten salt flowing through an approximately 640-foot tall solar power tower. The molten salt circulates from the tower to a storage tank, where it is then used to produce steam and generate electricity.  Excess thermal energy is stored in the molten salt and can be used to generate power for up to ten hours, including during the evening hours and when direct sunlight is not available. The storage technology also eliminates the need for any backup fossil fuels, such as natural gas. 

Under a power purchase agreement (PPA) between SolarReserve and Nevada Energy, all power generated by the Crescent Dunes project in the next 25 years will be sold to the Nevada Power Company for $0.135 per kilowatt-hour. In late September, 2011, Tonopah Solar Energy received a $737 million loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).  The capital funds included $170,000,000 in EB-5 investment through SolarReserve / ACS Cobra partner CMB Regional Centers.

Construction at the renewable energy generation station began in 2011 and ended in 2013, followed by several months of testing the plant systems. Melting about 70,000,000 pounds of salt takes took two months. Once melted, the salt stays melted for the life of the plant and gets cycled through the receiver for reheating. The SolarReserve’s Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Facility project entered commissioning phase in February 2014.  The Super Bright Glow of the solar power tower can sometimes be visible at more than a hundred miles away on highway US 95. The plant’s strategic location is in the desolate, geographical and sun-filled desert of central Nevada.

“In early 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was put in place to jump start the economy and fix a number of everyday needs across America.  A number of new and re-development projects were put in place within Illinois.  Stimulus projects have been focused within the areas of eduction, housing and energy, health and human services, public safety, transportation and infrastructure, broadband technology, general workforce development and retention and within the water and sewer main industry.

Miller + Miller was recently commission to capture photographically a few ongoing construction projects underway by an Illinois based consulting and engineering firm.  We arrived on location at the construction site to capture under-construction marketing photographs documenting the engineering company’s newest and active projects.  The Chicago area firm has expertise and experience in providing improvements, repairing and expanding of water and wastewater infrastructures and facilities.  No only does the firm have a  focus on water and wastewater markets, but also in aviation, highways & bridges, and land development.  We look forward to hearing about your company’s photography and marketing needs.  Submit your inquiry on our contact page and include within your contact a description of your photographic needs.”

Miller + Miller Photography is an Northern Illinois Architectural Photography Company providing commercial marketing photography for a variety of marketing departments, clients and industries including the engineering industry, consulting, product, construction, development or building industries.  Ryan and Sarah Miller are the owners and photographers of the photography company and are available for traveling photo projects within Illinois or to capture photo projects outside of the state of IL.
