  9. The Ivanpah Solar Power Facility, in the Mojave desert. The arrangement of mirrors seems rather haphazard and un-geometric compared to other solar power plants.

  10. The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, is a solar thermal power project in the California Mojave Desert, 40 miles (64 km) southwest of Las Vegas, with a planned gross capacity of 392 megawatts (MW). It deploys 173,500 heliostats each with two mirrors focusing solar energy on boilers located on centralized solar power towers.
    The project attracted some controversy because of its location on desert habitat considered by wildlife officials and environmentalists to be important for the threatened desert tortoise. Unit 1 of the project was connected to the grid in September 2013 in an initial sync testing.
    The facility formally opened on February 13, 2014.

    The Mojave desert tortoise doesn’t come across as a high-roller.

    But among land-going critters on the endangered species list, it’s among the top recipients of money spent by state and federal agencies trying to keep it from the brink of extinction, according to an Associated Press analysis of the last 11 years of available data.

    From 1996 to 2006, more than $93 million was spent on managing the long-lived reptile, records show. That’s more than was spent on other species such as the grizzly bear, gray wolf or bald eagle.

    Not bad for a pokey desert dweller that spends most of its time in underground burrows in parts of Utah, California, Arizona and Nevada.
