Uma imensa usina solar funciona agora no deserto de Mojave (Califórnia – Estados Unidos), a sua operação começou este mês. A usina vai gerar cerca de 30% do total de energia que é captada deste mesmo modo nos Estados Unidos, as fotos impressionam pela beleza e pela imensidão das placas em modo simétrico ao longo do deserto.

A usina é mantida pro algumas empresas, incluindo o Google! Que tem uma parte sob a usina.

Com certeza é um meio de energia renovável em que vale a pena investir, sem contar que acrescenta muito mais valor na paisagem do que um prédio velho queimando carvão, não é?

Veja as fotos e surpreenda-se:

IVANPAH, CALIFORNIA, APRIL 04 2013: Tower 2 and its heliostats at sunrise at the Ivanpah Solar Power Facility. Located in the Mojave Desert 40 miles southwest of Las Vegas, The Ivanpah Solar Power Facility is a solar thermal power project, currently under construction, with a planned capacity of 392 megawatts, enough to power approximately 140,000 houses. It will deploy 170,000 heliostat mirrors spread over 4,000 hectares, focusing solar energy on boilers located atop three solar power towers, generating steam to drive specially adapted steam turbines The project, developed by Bechtel, will cost $2.2 billion and be the largest solar farm in the world (photo Gilles Mingasson/Getty Images for Bechtel).
