Solar power arrays in Spain

A fascinating-looking place, well seen by Marcelo del Pozo. Sort of reminds me of Tatooine in Star Wars, even if these panels are farming heat rather than moisture.

There are more pictures of the installation, which looks like a very beautiful piece of industrial design and engineering, at the European Solar Thermal Electricity Association web site. The wide shots on that site really help you understand how this facility works, as they show the tower that the mirrors are reflecting sunlight onto.

A quick web search yields more information about the facility, but I'm unable to find any information on the economics of the plant--whether it is profitable and competitive with other energy sources in terms of price. We're asking those questions a lot in our video series on U.S. environmental entrepreneurs.
