The World’s Largest Thermal Solar Plant

➤ Location : Mojave Desert, California
➤ Capacity : 377 Megawatts (MW)
➤ It will power 140,000 houses.
➤ Completion Date : 2014
➤ Cost : $1.6 Billion

Over 300,000 software-controlled mirrors will track the sun and reflect the sunlight to boilers that sit atop three 459 foot tall towers. This heat is then turned into steam that goes through turbines to generate electricity. It will prevent the emission of over 350,000 metric tons of CO2 a year.
