Power your life with salt.

Featured No Comments

In Nevada USA a US$ 737 million investment was made in the solar power generating plant Crescent Dunes to store solar energy in salt.
What they are going to do is melt salt during the day with solar energy, then store that hot salt for later and then release the heat in the salt during the night heating water to generate steam that will in turn generate electricity.
