As interesting as those solar tower 'prototypes' (so far, since they're having a hard time becoming a mainstream power generation method) I can't
see the significance of building one in Area 51.
I don't mean to take a shot at you, I just wonder why you thought they'd construct something like this. They are generally quite large and produce a
lot of power, they also usually need a lot of flat space around them to pull air upwards without interference. I don't know whether Area 51 has the
suitable conditions for a structure of this type and I wonder why on Earth they would want such a 'fragile' system of power generation for a
facility that is (seemingly) already well-powered.
Just my thoughts on that idea.
