2,000 MEGAWATTS (MW)

The price of the fully dispatchable zero emission energy generation + energy storage from Sandstone is competitive on pricing against the market without any special subsidies

0 FOSSIL FUEL

0 EMISSIONS

SolarReserve’s unique solar + storage technology does not require any natural gas backup

7 MILLION MEGAWATT-HOURS
POWER PER YEAR

7 MILLION MEGAWATT-HOURS POWER PER YEAR

Storage will allow the facility to produce more than twice as much net annual output (megawatt hours) than an equivalent sized photovoltaic (PV) solar project

20,000 MEGAWATT-HOURS
ENERGY STORAGE

20,000 MEGAWATT-HOURS ENERGY STORAGE

A comparable amount of power delivery plus energy storage using rooftop solar with batteries would cost almost $30 billion

10 HR FULL LOAD
STORAGE

10 HR FULL LOAD STORAGE

Storage will enable the plant to operate just like a conventional fossil fuel or nuclear power plant, reliably generating electricity day and night – except without any emissions or hazardous waste

40+ YRS STORAGE WITH
NO DEGRADATION

40+ YEARS STORAGE WITH NO DEGRADATION

Unlike batteries, molten salt lasts for 40 years or more, without any degradation or need for replacement; it also costs less than batteries

40,000 DIRECT, INDIRECT
AND INDUCED JOBS

40,000 DIRECT, INDIRECT AND INDUCED JOBS

The project will create approximately 40,000 direct, indirect, and induced jobs across America
