“Solar Power Plant in Sanlucar la Mayor”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

This is the hole reason why my family and I are in Spain, my husband is working for the company that built this Solar Power Plant. It is something to be seen. The best view of it is from on top of the hill at the end of the town Sanlucar la Mayor, Seville.

“Awesome: closest to the surface of the sun you can get”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

The PS10 Solar Power Plant (Spanish: Planta Solar 10), is Europe's first commercial concentrating solar power tower operating near Seville, in Andalucia, Spain. The 11 megawatt (MW) solar power tower produces electricity with 624 large movable mirrors called heliostats. It took four years to build and so far cost €35 million.

Each of the mirrors has a surface measuring 120 m² (1,292 square feet) that concentrates the sun's rays to the top of a 115 metre (377 ft) high, 40-storey tower where a solar receiver and a steam turbine are located. The turbine drives a generator, producing electricity.
