Solar Thermal Energy
The largest ‘solar thermal-electric’ installation of its kind in the world,
the Luz project in California’s Mojave Desert, has a peak output of some
350 megawatts and occupies several square kilometers of land
In 1995 Solar One was converted into Solar Two, by adding a second ring
of 108 larger 95 m² (1,000 ft²) heliostats around the existing Solar One,
totaling 1926 heliostats with a total area of 82,750 m² (891,000 ft²)
Stirling Energy Systems‘ solar dish technology is the world’s most efficient
device for the conversion of solar energy to grid-delivered electricity,
nearly twice as efficient as any alternative solar technology.
