google solar

I’m not going to lie, a solar energy bull and a big fan of, well, America, this shit gets me pumped…

via GigOM:

Less than a hundred miles from the rim of the Hoover Dam, just outside of Las Vegas at the edge of dusty San Bernardino County, sits a symbol of how the sun will some day provide copious amounts of electricity for entire cities. This is Ivanpah, the world’s largest operating solar farm, which uses 347,000 mirrors (173,500 heliostats) and three huge 450-foot towers to harness the sun’s heat to generate electricity.

As of the beginning of this year, it’s a mere symbol no longer. After more than seven years of development, over three years of construction, 2,700 workers, and $1.6 billion…

Head over to have your mind blown:

The Hoover Dam of solar is now live in the desert of California. Here’s why it’s so important (GigaOM)
