Alternativa Solar de Expansión sin Necesidad de Subsidios

Gracias José Antonio Junior por la contribución.
Mi hijo Jr. me envía esta noticia interesante para colocar en un Plan Indicativo. A pesar de que las tecnologías solares pensadas como grandes centrales están bajo cierto cuestionamiento, se debe tomar en consideración esta variedad.

" Stirling engines are not a neglected or forgotten technology after all, according to a story at PESN. With 20 years of in-the-field fine-tuning, Stirling Energy Systems is now ready to go big -- real big. They signed a purchase agreement Tuesday with Southern California Edison (SEC), to install a 20,000 dish array that will cover 4,500 acres and will be capable of generating 500 megawatts of electricity -- more than all other U.S. solar projects combined -- making this the largest solar installation in the world. Each collector has a 37-foot-diameter array of mirrors to focus the sun's rays on the Stirling engine, which turns the heat into rotational torque for electricity generation. According to a spokesperson for SCE, this purchase will be in their commercial interest, requiring no subsidy in order to compete, implying that the efficiencies of the technology will give them an edge in the market.
