Southwest US could get 250MW solar power plant
The solar trough setup uses arrays of parabolic mirrors that can track the sun across the sky. The mirrors focus the sunlight on a tube at their focus point that is filled with mineral oil that is heated to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The hot oil is passed through a heat exchanger to produce steam that drives a electric turbine. The group hopes to get all the approvals to build the facility by early next year.
