Update

eSolar has developed a solar thermalpower plant technology. eneration can be scaled from 46 MW to over 500 MW. eSolar's modular, scalable power plant architecture enables custom built facilities with generating capacities of 46 MW to 500 MW and energy prices that are competitive with fossil fuels. eSolar systems provide competitive energy prices even at the 46 MW level, and can expand generation capacity to over 500 MW to meet the needs of any energy retailer. eSolar constructs power plants using a tiered delivery model. The power plants are structured on a 46 MW base unit, called a "power module."
