Print Description

This Overview shows the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in Tonopah, Nevada. The facility powers up to 75,000 homes during peak electricity periods. The project uses 17,500 heliostat mirrors to collect and focus the sun’s thermal energy to heat molten salt flowing through a 540-foot (160 m) tall solar power tower. The molten salt then circulates from the tower to a storage tank where it is used to produce steam and generate electricity. One last thing  - for a sense of scale here, look closely at the lower left corner of the Overview and you’ll notice a commercial airplane flying over the complex!
