'[OT] 11MW solar tower in Spain'
"The 11 megawatt PS10 solar power plant will generate 24.3 GW/hr per
year of clean energy and comprises 624 movable heliostats (mirrors).
Each of the mirrors has a surface area of 120 square meters (1292
square feet) which concentrates the Sun's rays to the top of a
115-meter (377 foot) high tower where the solar receiver and a steam
turbine are located. The turbine drives a generator, producing
electricity. The two axis heliostats move automatically as a function
of the solar calendar."
I think there is a typo in the above sentence (24.3GW/hr / year should
be 24.3GWh) but nevertheless, it looks very interesting!

Having spend some time in southern Spain in August, I definitely agree
that solar power is the way to go in that part of the world!
