Solar Power Station

Person for scale

Most of the power stations we visit are coal, nuclear or gas fired. All technologies that have gone out of favour as renewable grow cheaper and more prevalent.

Solar Concentrators  track the sun throughout the day, using hundreds of mirrors to focus the energy into a small area, concentrating the power 500 times.

Slated to be the biggest and most efficient solar photo-voltaic power station in the world,  somehow this Solar Power Station in Victoria became abandoned. The mirrors painted over, gates shut and forgotten about.
