That's cool... I saw this on "Modern Marvels" last night too. The US could be totally powered by about 600+ of these towers. The Aussies are also working on a solar "wind" tower that heats air on the ground and directs it up a 2500' tall tunnel with the draft powering turbines at the base. The area covered by the collector is about 3 miles across...
