Solar Flux; From Bug to Feature

ENN Pollution - Wed, 10/11/2017 - 20:19

He found that adding PV on the tower could generate over 10 MW, or 10% of the total capacity of a 100 MW CSP plant, using the same reflected sunlight off heliostats used to focus “suns” up onto the tower receiver for thermal solar generation.
