The World’s Largest Solar Plant Started Creating Electricity Today
Million Mirrors Focusing Energy
Amazingly, the Record of World Largest Solar Power Plant is getting broken every now n then… must say Solar Energy is in Exponential Growth!
Take 300,000 computer-controlled mirrors, each 7 feet high and 10 feet wide. Control them with computers to focus the Sun’s light to the top of 459-foot towers, where water is turned into steam to power turbines. Bingo: you have the world’s biggest solar power plant, the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System.
Long-mired by regulatory issues and legal tangles, the enormous solar plant–jointly owned by NRG Energy, BrightSource Energy and Google–opened for business today.
