Spain Touts Tower of Power

Tower Energizes Thousands of Homes


In Seville, Spain, there is a massive tower of  "power".  Solar power, that is.  This solar station, dubbed PS10, is a 300 foot tall tower surrounded by 624 solar panels that will generate enough electricity to power 60,000 homes.  Along with this tower, there is a secondary plant, or station, that is composed of 154 panels that will generate enough electricity for about 1800 homes. 

The tower works by the use of mirrors and photovoltaic panels. These track the sun throughout the year.  They collect the sun's energy, which heats water, at the top of the tower.  This water turns into steam and is then used to turn turbines to generate electricity.
