  • Arandis thermal-solar plant construction starts

    Interesting to read of a project like this in a place like Namibia.

    "The originality also lies in the fact that the solar park is not operated in the traditional manner in which electricity is self-dispatched into the national grid when an electrical current is generated, but rather the solar energy is used as a fuel-saving mechanism for the power produced by the HFO engines.

    “The function of the solar park of the Arandis Power’s 120MW hybrid power plant is purely to reduce the fuel bill of the power station and to bring down the overall cost of electricity for NamPower and the country,” explained Vernetti.

    The savings on this ‘fuel bill’ could be up to N$150 million per year – which equates to about 23 000 tonnes of fuel a year."

    If it pays, it stays

    Novel idea. Hope the math and science is correct.

    In the long run, it will probably put off strip mining the other planets for about a month.
    Robert Francis O'Rourke, Democrat, White guy, spent ~78 million to defeat, Ted Cruz, Republican immigrant Dark guy …
    and lost …
    But the Republicans are racist.
