Other media links to the coverage of the announcement:
From Forbes: The Belridge oil field in the San Joaquin Valley of California has produced about 1.7 billion barrels of heavy crude since its discovery in 1911. Thanks to advances in solar power, its next 500 million barrels will be a little bit greener.
From The Washington Post: But the oil field is about to become even more remarkable. Its future production operations will be partly powered by a massive solar energy project that will make the oil extraction process more environmentally friendly, according to Aera and GlassPoint Solar, the firm that will create the solar project.
From The Bakersfield Californian: In a move touted as a boon to air quality, Aera Energy and GlassPoint Solar officials announced plans Wednesday to build the state’s largest solar field. The project, which would assist Aera’s oil extraction operations, would also reduce carbon dioxide emissions throughout Kern County, the partners said.
