What are solar thermal plants?

    Solar thermal electric power plants combine the essence of solar power and thermal energy. They generates heat by using lenses and reflectors to concentrate the sun’s energy into heat. Since heat can be stored, these plants are unique because they can generate power whenever needed, regardless of the time of day, rain or shine (something solar-only plants lack). Major solar thermal technologies thus far include the Power Tower, the Parabolic Dish, and the Parabolic Trough – all of which are provide grid support with differing applications and advantages (check out the link below).
