The solar power station is located in the United States Nevada desert, equipped with more than 10,000 mirror. Each mirror and the size of billboards along the highway, they neatly arranged array, located in the middle of huge molten salt is a 195-meter Tower. Here looks like with deep space alien communication between sites. By SolarReserve, this company to build and operate solar power stations to power 75,000 households.

The power difference is that it can on a cloudy day and night-time power generation, this is a great progress in renewable energy technology, that technology has reached worldwide is the first utility-scale. Most solar photovoltaic power generation through solar panels to capture solar energy, will be directly converted to electrical energy, and supply network available to the user immediately. If there is a cloudy day, the energy efficiency of this type of power stations is significantly reduced, and if there is no demand for electricity on sunny days, reserve power is wasted.

Crescent Dunes are concentrating photovoltaic power plants, used thousands of mirrors to reflect the Sun’s light to the central tower of molten salt. In the Tower, gathering sunlight liquid salt heat 270,000 kilograms to more than 566 c. Salt can retain a high level of heat, will to some extent played the role of thermal battery. When the electricity demand occurs, the power company staff on the use of molten salt storage heat to drive a conventional steam turbine. Achieve zero carbon emissions throughout the process. Mirror configuration area 2.7 km in diameter, has a total area of 1.2 million square meters and all mirrors.
