Agua Prieta II

This page provides information on ISCC Agua Prieta II, a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, with data organized by background, participants, and power plant configuration. Integrated Solar Combined-Cycle (ISCC) technology combines the benefits of solar energy with the benefits of a combined cycle. The solar resource partially substitutes the fossil fuel. Agua Prieta II project has an overall capacity of 478 MW (464 MW combined cycle, 14 MW solar input). An additional natural gas duct–burner allows a similar production of 14 MWe when solar field is not in operation.
