This doesn't strike me as being terribly efficient
The auxiliary boiler and HTF heaters for each unit would be fueled by natural gas. The gas for the entire project would be supplied from a new 10-mile (two miles offsite) four-
inch diameter pipeline connected to an existing SCG main pipeline south of I-10 (mentioned above). Natural gas delivered to the project site would be delivered via an SCG custody transfer station consisting of filtering equipment, pressure regulating valves, and a fiscal flow meter. Pressure limiting equipment would be provided to ensure the downstream piping would be protected from overpressure. The estimated maximum natural gas usage per unit is 70 MMBtu/hr when the HTF heater is in use on cold winter nights.
The Mojave desert is rich in ephemeral plants, most of which are endemic. Of the approximately 250 Mojave taxa with this life form, perhaps 80-90 are endemic (Sheve and Wiggins 1964). During favorable years, the region supports more endemic plants per square meter than any location in the United States.
