SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive has unveiled plans to build two new solar plants at the same site, but with different names.

Rive unveiled the two new facilities, one at the southern end of the city, and the other at the northern end, in a presentation to the California Solar Energy Industries Association.

The northern site would be the largest of the two, with an estimated total capacity of 50 megawatts and a capacity factor of 8.2, according to a company blog post.

The southern site would have an estimated capacity of 15 megawatts.

The announcement comes a day after a court ruled that a lawsuit filed by solar company BrightSource Energy against the city over its approval of the proposed project should be dismissed.

The suit seeks to block the city from approving the project, claiming the city did not provide sufficient notice, adequate public comment or public notification of the plans.

The solar company has also sued the city in federal court.

The proposed projects are not expected to generate enough electricity to generate power to power nearly a third of the state, according the Solar Energy Industry Association.
