So that whole solar mirror thing really works?

The sun – it’s not just for tricks anymore,

Two years ago, I blogged about Chevron using solar mirrors to power oil/gas explorations.

This concept seems like something out of science-fiction – although developers have built a 300,000 mirror solar generator which is reportedly about to go on-line in the Mojave Desert.  So, you say, how much solar power can be generated when so few of us live in the desert?

Now comes news out of London of all places about a building that appears to have  inadvertently set up its own solar mirror system.  A gentleman in London claims that a mirrored building actually melted parts of his car after only two hours!  Seems like a possible new design trend in the offing, if they can figure out how to capture that energy!
