• Solar thermal power to help generate 3.7 billion kilowatt hours of electricity

  • brightsource.jpgSince the sun has the energy and power to run an entire solar system, it is about time somebody thought about getting their acts to derive a large amount of energy form it. Southern California Edison and solar power plant maker BrightSource signed a deal where more than 1,300 mega watts of energy will be generated from the desert outside Los Angeles. This deal may be able to provide electricity for 845,000 homes. This is of course, if the plan doesn’t go wrong and if it actually works. This is huge and something this huge always has obstacles. Hopefully this one will indeed keep its oath of using solar thermal power to generate electricity.

    On completion the installment of these solar power generators will be able to produce 3.7 billion kilowatt hours of electricity per year! It’s amazing. I hope it works. Maybe Africa should think about this too… if they find a brave and rich investor.
