Largest Solar Project in the World Planned for Southern California

Stirling Energy Systems is planning to build two solar farms in Southern California for Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric. The design plans call for thousands of 40-foot-tall curved dishes that focus the solar energy onto Stirling Engines. The Stirling Engine is a sealed system filled with hydrogen that is heated to drive the engine to create electricity. This will be the largest solar project in the world and be bigger than all the solar projects in the U.S. combined.
