We're seeing more & more of these alternative energy generation sources going up all over (which is a good thing - and about time). I have to say though that this one is pretty novel.

Solar is such boondoggle.
The money would be better spent on new nuclear power plants. They at least work.

Potentially these solar towers would cost MUCH less to maintain than a nuclear power plant. That equates to cheaper electricity. I'm all for a smaller electric bill, especially in the summer time, when these power plants would be most efficient.
