US banks $737 million on molten-salt solar power in Nevada:

The plans call for construction of a 640-foot tall solar power tower structure partnered with up to 17,500 heliostats (tracking mirrors) that will annually produce enough electricity to power over 43,000 homes. The high-temperature thermal storage using molten salt technology will provide up to 10 hours’ worth of equivalent energy storage, so even during nighttime or cloudy conditions, the solar power plant will still feed electricity into the grid.
