Street View tour of the new Ivanpah Solar Plant

Ivanpah

(Photo above: The Playa?)

Competing Solar power plants (although different technologies) are now harvesting the Sun’s rays to bring more chimes and bells and 24 hour partying to the Sin City (or maybe to power homes, internet switches, or server farms)

Having driven to Las Vegas this month I can say that the Ivanpah array is mesmerizingly beautiful (if not just for the symmetry) then at least because it’s a shiny sea of mirrors to compliment that magnificent dessert view.
