Geothermal company Ormat Technologies Inc. has completed the 16 MW Don A. Campbell geothermal power plant in Mineral County, Nev.

According to Ormat, the Don A. Campbell facility, formerly called Wild Rose, is receiving a full rate of $99 per MWh with no annual escalation under the terms of the power purchase agreement with Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA). Ormat notes that SCPPA is reselling the power to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and Burbank Water and Power.

The company says it transmits the power from the plant to SCPPA over NV Energy's transmission grid, including the new One Nevada Transmission Line that was recently placed in service.
