A $285-million solar energy project will provide most of the power for a major Colorado steel mill, allowing it to produce what it says will be “some of the world’s greenest steel.”

Lightsource BP’s 300-MW Bighorn Solar project, which includes more than 750,000 solar panels, was built on 1,800 acres of land at EVRAZ North America’s Rocky Mountain Steel property in Pueblo in collaboration with utility company Xcel Energy.
