The United States is a leader in the field of solar energy. With California showing the way, the US has many utility-scale solar power plants and there are plans underway to construct several larger solar plants in the country. The largest of these proposed plants is going to be the 968 MW Blythe Solar Power Project, which is going to be located in California.
At present, the Solar Energy Generating Systems facility in California is the largest solar power installation in the world. Several other noteworthy solar plants in the US include the Nevada Solar One, the DeSoto Next Generation Solar Energy Center, amongst others.
