Solúcar PS10 es una planta solar termoeléctrica por tecnología de torre, la primera en el mundo explotada comercialmente. Solucar PS10 is the first solar thermal power plant based on tower in the world that generate electricity in a commercial way.
The first solar powered energy plant that produced electricity around the clock, because it stored so much energy in the basin of molten salt that sits on top of this tower, that it carried enough energy to produce steam during the night. It reached this milestone on July 4th, 2011.
Solar Collector power plant simulation set to heliostats on solar concentrator and located in Nashua, NH, 12/08/2010. Red lines indicate solar path and sunrise/sunset azimuths on simulation date. Red shading indicates solar elevation angle and azimuth at time of screenshot.
