Yo I met one of the architects for this once, apparently all the mirrors reflect light onto the central tower which pumps like a salt through it, anyway the salt gets super hot which runs a normal steam engine. The benefit over solar panels is the hot salt can actually act like a battery over night and for a few days without sun so it's still pumping out power all year

If you're asking for a skeptic's take on solar:
https://mobile.twitter.com/PeterZeihan/status/989868124525809664

The abstract is this, even though solar is cheap in many regions, it can only be collected in useful quantities outside of the hours of peak energy use. Energy storage is inefficient and expensive (part of the reason petroleum is so important) and if the US wanted to switch to solar using currently available technologies, it would need to consume the entire planet's lithium production for a period of decades. It's neat for threads like this, but the truth is that wind is a better choice in nearly all instances.

The exception is orbital solar arrays, transmitting power to earth in beams of microwaves. Death rays and satellite stations seem like sci-fi, but the math checks out.

Most of these images remind me of the utopian science fiction pictures that I'd see in the 50's/60's, that and and most of these pictures seem like major industrial projects that would perpetuate status quo.

>>
>>7401362
Reread my post, dumb dumb. The problem isn't cost. The problem is that ground based pv panels don't produce any energy at all when a modern society needs it most. We are incapable of solving this problem in the short to mid term by any means.

That means that even if this country adopted solar in earnest, it would not be capable of outcompeting fossil fuels in any way, shape, or form.

You are wrong, peak energy demand is during office hours, at daytime, noon on sunny summer days. Incidentally this is exactly when photovoltaic works best.

Meanwhile solar is out-competing everything else. Especially fossil.

I do battery shit myself. Graphene for photovoltaics sounds like a meme.

I'm just praying for for perovskite to actual last longer than a week but I haven't looked into it lately. I don't give a shit if it has lead in it, as long as you're not grinding them into powder then I don't see much of an issue especially with solar farms.

Regardless I think the reason we don't have more solar is big oil. You can check red states where they make laws so you no longer get paid when you put more energy into the grid.

IMO it's gotta go grassroots because even now its financially viable if you own a home and don't plan to move in 15 years (see all boomers)
