    I love it

    Very good but we, the people of third world countries can just see videos and dreams.

    Where does all the excess go to?

    They forgot to inform people that solar plants like these kill thousands of birds. Birds can be incinerated in flight be the intense sun light. I live in California and there is a solar plant just like this one in the desert and they are reporting that thousands of birds are being killed each year. If you want to save the environment this is not the way.

    Looks like growbags or hydroponics. Meh. Really I think you need to fling a load of rotting wood into the soil (actually buried beneath that poor dust) and the cellulose will counter that massive salt problem Australia has. Quite frankly, after that you could do with growing trees and complementing some of that with farm land that results from it. The wood makes good fuel and a cash crop and it much nicer than those grubby photovoltaics.

    This is a type of growth which every country expects

    Wonder what the price of a solar grown tomato is compared to the regular solar powered tomatoes? Minus subsidies?

    We need a lot of these installations to compensate for the loss of ice sheets and keep our planet cool. It will be interesting to combine these techniques with forestation programs. We should reclaim farmland from the desert instead of burning down rain forests. With a small effort we can actually contribute to the environment and improve the overall quality of life of all species. Such techniques should be introduced in the Middle East and Africa. Food and water for the people will put an effective end to a lot of conflicts as well as diseases. International holistic agriculture. First things first!

    Thanks so good. These will bring peace… oil is war.

    I think nuclear power would do job better. How? Waste-heat from cooling reactor can boil sea water, this water now condensated can be directly use!
    The best reactor for that is MRS LFTR for cheap energy and being independent of water!

    No top vents. How do you cool that greenhouse during the day?

    Mix in trees that bear fruit, over time as soils get enrich you can drill wells to hydrate the soils to slowly improve the ground water.

    Turn all deserts green.

  • Andreas Mathiassen 8 months ago

    I would build this, it is very convincing. Interesting. the sunmirrors are still kind of new to me, but I think I understand the concept.

  • David Walters 8 months ago

    Also..what is the total MWs in "e" and "t"??? (e is total megawatts in power; t is total net MWs)

  • David Walters 8 months ago

    Missing is the cost of the plant.

  • Nic Phan 8 months ago

    Do like China and turn the desert green with trees plants and it will sustain itself.

  • Vijayanathan Stephen 8 months ago

    I really love this green energy system !
