The article provides information on the completion of the Sempra Generation solar power plant. According to the article, Sempra Generation of San Diego, California completed a 10-megawatt solar power plant in the Eldorado Valley of Boulder City on December 22, 2008. The El Dorado Solar Project reportedly uses photovoltaic technology wherein the light of the sun charges electrons and makes electricity. Sempra Generation says that it may expand the plant's power capacity to 60 megawatts.
