What’s in the Salt River Project?
Salt River Projects, a project to build an energy-efficient house in the desert, has been selected by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to conduct an environmental review.
It is expected to be completed by 2021.
The company, based in California, has also been selected to participate in the Federal Clean Energy Fund.
In 2018, the company raised $1.5 billion in funding, which included $1 billion in venture capital, as well as $250 million from private investors.
Its new project in the Colorado River Valley is slated to start construction in 2020.
The project was announced by U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz in 2018, following a $1-billion commitment from the National Academy of Sciences.
The announcement comes as the U.N. agency Climate Leadership Council reports that the United States is on track to reach its CO2 emissions goals by 2020.
