‘The AORA formerly EDIG Solar hybrid solar power station will be up and running as of today, with enough capacity to power 70 homes continuously — through the night and cloud cover. Thirty heliostats will track and reflect the sun towards the nearly hundred-foot tall turbine tower, where the concentrated sunlight heats compressed air, which then drives a gas turbine.’
