The Worlds Largest Solar Power Plant

"Take 300,000 computer-controlled mirrors, each 7 feet high and 10 feet wide. Control them with computers to focus the Sun's light to the top of 459-foot towers, where water is turned into steam to power turbines. Bingo: you have the world's biggest solar power plant, the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System."

Opening for business in 2014, the power plant is located on 5-square miles of the Mojave Desert near the Nevada - California border.
