Cool! Good news from the New York Times – Two Large Solar Plants Planned in California – NYTimes.com. These plants, covering 12.5 square miles of land aim to produce up to 800 MegaWatts of electricity or about the same as a large coal-fired plant. All with no raw materials being ferried in, no waste materials going out and no worries about filtering pollution and carbon. This makes me really happy to see this sort of power plant being introduced.
