How do solar thermal power plants work?Adam
Solar thermal power plants work very similarly to nuclear and coal power plants. Except solar thermal power plants use a variety of techniques to maximize the concentration of the sun’s energy as a heat source. For example, one technique is employing the use of movable mirrors to focus the sun’s rays on a tower which collects the light rays. This heat is then used to boil water which drives a steam turbine that will generate electricity.
