|California has just approved a new solar project that could revolutionize how we use energy from the sun â€“ namely because it will be able to keep producing electricity even after night falls. SolarReserveâ€˜s Rice Solar Energy Project will end up looking a lot like the solar thermal tower above but will have a secret weapon hidden underneath â€“ molten salt. Since the salt will be able to reach temperatures over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit and retain most of the heat it collects during the day, the plant will have the ability to keep churning out juice long after the sun goes down. It will be the first project in California to use the savory technology to store and distribute energy.|
I like this idea, double time energy!
