What does a solar power plant look like? Click here. 
This is a trough-type plant. Tower solar power plants
are a little different. Both use enormous amounts of
water, unless "dry cooling" is employed.   
We are a grass-roots group of concerned citizens and
homeowners who have learned much about wind and
solar power and are working with several organizations and our
county representatives on this important matter, as it impacts
land use in northern Arizona.
