A €1.60 billion solar farm, the worlds largest so far ,spans over five square miles of federal land southwest of Las Vegas and includes three towers as tall as 50meters . There are nearly 350,000 mirrors, each the size of a garage door that reflect sunlight onto boilers atop the towers, creating steam that drives power generators.
