Indb 13 11/12/2012 2:26:19 PM 14 Project development in the solar industry Energy generation, in solar thermal systems, is accomplished through capturing and collecting sunlight and converting it to heat to be used in a thermal cycle like the Rankine or Stirling cycle. There are two main categories of solar thermal systems. First, the non-concentrating systems primarily found on small residential or commercial installations that are used to heat water for personal use. Second, the concentrating solar power type in which mirrors or lenses are used to concentrate the sunlight onto a smaller area to achieve a high temperature on some working fluid medium.

Much of this vacant desert land is situated in an area of such powerful solar resource which has led to significant development of large solar projects, especially in southern California. Depending on the technology, the amount of acres allocated for every Megawatt (MW) of solar energy generally ranges from 5–10 acres per MW. For instance the SunPower 250 MW project, California Valley Solar Ranch, in San Luis Obispo County is planned to cover 1,966 acres of land (California Valley Solar Ranch, 2009).

Power Tower technology is quickly vying to be the most installed technology with firms such as Solar Reserve and BrightSource getting ready to break ground on several hundred MW of projects. The parabolic trough power plant consists of two main parts: the solar field and the power block. In the solar field, curved mirrors are arranged to form a trough having a parabolic cross section called a solar collector assembly (SCA). These SCAs focus the sun’s light onto a receiver tube called a heat collection element (HCE) situated at the parabolic trough’s focal point.
