Sexy Solar Part Two

It was officially switched "on" in August 2009 and you can see the big smiles on the investors' faces. It is the first U.S. operational solar tower facility. The mirrors on the arrays reflect the sun's energy to a dedicated tower. This iconic tower boils water to steam that travels through long pipes to provide juice to a turbine. Viola! We have electricity! This plant, created by a Pasadena-based company, called ESolar, Inc., will provide power to 4,000 homes. See the video.
