Solar Farms Outside of Las Vegas, Nevada

solar-farms-nevada

On the drive from Los Angeles, California, to Las Vegas, Nevada, along Interstate 15 there is an alien looking group of bright lights.

As you get closer to realize that these bright lights are at the top of three towers, and the light is being reflected back down to the ground. Laid out around the towers are solar panels. The sight of this farm is incredible. The absolutely brightest bright light coming from these towers, the mass of panels on the ground capturing the rays and turning them into energy. The whole thing is amazing.

The name of the farm is Ivanpah Solar Power Facility. The farm is specifically called a Concentrated Solar Thermal Plant. If you ever have a chance, check it out. The future should be amazing… as long as their isn’t some kind of World War III, especially if it’s anything like the one from the Star Trek universe.
