On about 3,500 acres of land there are giant mirrors that are 163 square feet each and there are 347,000 of them reflecting onto three different 450 foot towers that you can see from the roadside. These towers are actually solar powered steam generators that produce about 1,000 gigawatts per year and can provide electricty to about 140,000 homes each year. Pretty much any bird that flies in the path of the concentrated light get’s cooked mid flight. In fact the plant’s workers say they actually ignite before they hit the ground and report that approximately 1,000 birds die each year.
