What a waist of money, No Way does it cost that much to make this Solar tower. Someones getting the left over money and filling there pockets. wasteful spending yet again.
The article says that this is the first of its kind to be built, I find that funny, considering that the company I work for supplied some replacement pieces of glass, for the White Sands Solar facility, that uses the same technique, by focusing all the mirrors onto a tall structure, and heating it, until it creates steam, Its been in use since the 80's. I still prefer the Solar troughs to a solar tower, much more efficient, and easier to build and maintain.

All this outrage over Democrat's doing what the Republicans STILL do.
Why not get outraged over every bit of nepotism spending based the Republicans are doing too. (still, yet....)
Yet another case of, "Create outrage at the other party when our party does it too."
Or it does only count if its NOT oil??
Yeah... political bs.
