Judge grants injunction halting Tessera solar plant

Author:

A federal judge on Wednesday granted the Quechan Indian Tribe's request to temporarily halt work on a giant solar plant under development by NTR's Tessera Solar. The move represents something of a roadblock for efforts to bring more solar power to the U.S. and will likely bolster the position of various groups that are fighting to stop construction of solar plants around the Southwest.
