Video of the Construction of Topaz Solar Farms in California, Soon to be One of the World’s Largest Solar Plants

MidAmerican Renewables has captured aerial footage documenting the construction of Topaz Solar Farms, a photovoltaic power plant in San Luis Obispo County, California that is set to become one of the world’s largest when completed in early 2015. The project, which was started in 2011, will bring a fair amount of money to California’s Central Coast.

According to an economic benefits study by The Brattle Group and California Polytechnic State University, in San Luis Obispo, Calif., Topaz Solar Farms is estimated to infuse $417 million into the local economy, the majority of which will be generated during construction, with the remainder over the project’s minimum 25-year operating period.
