Utah, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Raser Technologies Inc. has completed final preparations to transmit power to the city of Anaheim from it’s Thermo plant in Utah beginning as early as next week. The commissioning date was extended while the local utility in Utah completed the installation of the SCADA equipment needed to monitor transmissions on the grid.
Raser has already been supplying about 3.5 megawatts (MW) of sustained power generated at the plant to the local utility while final preparations were completed. Raser plans to ramp up the amount of power delivered to Anaheim over the next few weeks.
“We are very pleased with the progress that we have made to date and believe that commissioning of the plant has gone very much in line with expectations,” said Steven Brown, executive vice president of Raser. “Once we have the final production well linked to the plant, we expect to be able to ramp up to the 10 to 11 MW net capacity. We expect to be ramped up to about 7 MW and begin sending the power to Anaheim by the end of next week.”
