PS10 Solar Power Plant

The PS10 Solar Power Plant in Seville uses angled mirrors to heat molten salt towers, generating energy. The bright panels in the western farm can provide contextual clues regarding the panels’ orientation, as radar energy from the Capella satellite is reflected back from the surface. In contrast, shadowing on the eastern farm indicates the mirrors […]

Tiangang Fishery & Solar Photovoltaic System

This SAR image shows a solar farm floating on top of the human-made Lake Tiangang in China. The fishery-solar hybrid photovoltaic power station covers approximately half of the lake’s surface and contrasts from the lake’s surface depicted by dark areas in the SAR image. A zoomed in view shows the individual solar arrays on floating […]
