Solar thermal power plants


BrightSource’s proprietary Luz Power Tower (LPT) 550 energy system is built on proven power tower technology. The system uses thousands of small mirrors to reflect sunlight onto a boiler atop a tower to produce high temperature steam. The superheated steam is then piped to a conventional turbine which generates electricity. Function of the product(s): Utility scale solar power plants steam production.


This fully integrated energy system is designed to offer the highest operating efficiencies and lowest capital costs in the industry. Its low-impact design also ensures that the technology has a minimal impact on the natural environment. The result is a large-scale solar system that delivers clean reliable energy at a cost competitive with fossil fuels.; Proven record of commercial use
