World largest solar power station open in California

347,000 computer-controlled mirrors used to focus sunlight onto boilers on top of three 459-foot towers, where water is heated to produce steam to power turbines providing power. With this project more than 140,000 houses will be facilitated with electricity in California.

The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System is seen in an aerial view on February 20, 2014 in the Mojave Desert in California near Primm, Nevada. The largest solar thermal power-tower system in the world, owned by NRG Energy, Google and BrightSource Energy, opened last week in the Ivanpah Dry Lake.
