In CA, we just finished a solar power (hybrid) plant which is located in Victorville. It cost $86 million and covers 46 arces of desert. The solar part of the power plant will power only 3,200 homes because the solar works 21% of the time; not at night or early morning or evenings and not on bad weather days. The solar plant is really a hybrid plant. The Natural gas part of the plant has 90% efficiency. Because of it's solar component, it becomes eligable for government financing and tax breaks. This is another greenie boondoggle and expected to raise double your electric bill.
