Stirling Solar Power

I mentioned it a couple years ago, but it looks like the initial pilot project for Stirling Energy is about to be authorized by the state of California. Eventually Stirling Energy will operate one of the largest solar power facilities in the country, a 500 MW, 4,500 acre behemoth in the countryside around Victorville, CA. At this stage however, plans are for a pilot project of 40 Stirling solar collectors instead of the projected 20,000 that will dot the landscape.

Stirling engines are cool. I really wish something like this would come to Guam, we get lots of sunshine. And wind too.
