Our Heber complex is located in Heber, Imperial County, California and, with 92 MW of capacity, is one of the biggest complexes we own and operate.
Since 1985, the Heber 1 power plant has used a dual flash system while the Heber 2 power plant has featured a binary system since 1993. After Ormat acquired the Heber 1 and 2 power plants in 2005, we enhanced and upgraded the capacity of both plants by adding two additions: G1 in 2005 and G2 in 2006 which included a bottoming-cycle OEC and an Ormat Integrated Two Level Unit (ITLU), respectively.
In 2008, we added the Heber South plant which features a binary systems.
The plants sell their electrical output under a long-term power purchase agreements with Southern California Edison and Southern California Public Power Authority.
