dirty energy …

[…] the massive mirror array off Interstate 15, just south of the Nevada state line, uses so much natural gas to function that it has to be regulated under California’s cap-and-trade boondoggle.

The project, funded by $1.6 billion in federal loan guarantees and $600 million in tax credits, burns natural gas when there isn’t sufficient sunshine to boil water and generate the steam that turns the plant’s turbines. Last year, the plant burned enough to emit 46,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide. Which officially makes a facility … a polluter.

Green energy turning black … the colour of Ivanpah’s solar streamers!

It turns out the green energy produced at the Ivanpah solar power facility isn’t so green after all.
