Tower of Power
EnviroMission's inspirational program to adapt innovative Solar Tower technology to US conditions to construct the world's first large-scale solar thermal power station is set to deliver a renewable energy solution that will also be a destination and extreme engineering icon.
The scale of the first 200MW power station is expected to capture worldwide attention and attract significant added value through tourism and agribusiness.
A single 200MW Solar Tower power station will provide enough electricity to power around 150,000 households, similar to the number of homes in a city the size of Burbank (California, USA) or Palm Bay (Florida, USA).
The energy output will represent an annual saving of approximately 1,000,000 tonnes of greenhouse CO2 gases from entering the environment, with an outstanding Life Cycle Analysis of 2.5 years.
