Solar Thermal Power Plant, green energy, Las Vegas
The largest in the world solar thermal plant near Ivanpah in the desert by Las Vegas is to become the 370-megawatt capacity built by BrightSource. It is a $2.2 billion facility including three towers with concentric mirror circles around them to focus sunlight onto a central tower generating high temperatures and thus producing steam. The project is to be completed next year; and it can boast at least one obvious strong point in comparison with other solar power units: its produced heat is easy to store, therefore energy can be generated even after the sunset, and electricity can be used whenever necessary.
