While NRG Energy may has some reticence about further solar thermal power investment, Abengoa is still moving full steam ahead. The company has 150 megawatts under construction at two sites in South Africa. At the beginning of this year the company announced plans to develop a 110 megawatt solar thermal power plant in Chile. What is even more interesting is that Abengoa already building a 280 megawatt solar thermal power plant near Barstow, California just a few miles down Interstate 15 from the Ivanpah solar thermal power plant being operated by NRG Energy and Brightsource.
