Worlds largest thermal solar plant could be coming to Nevada

Worlds largest thermal solar plant could be coming to Nevada

While thermal solar power plants have had a bit of trouble catching on in the US, solar energy company SolarReserve is hoping to change that. The company recently announced it’s hoping to build a 2,000 megawatt facility in Nevada called Sandstone. With a planned 10 towers and more than 100,000 concentrating mirrors, the plant would be the largest of its type anywhere in the world. It would overshadow SolarReserve’s Crescent Dunes plant , currently the largest in the US with 110 megawatts of capacity.
