Noor solar energy plantation

Ouarzazate Solar Power Station, also called Noor Power Station is a solar power complex located in the DrĂ¢a-Tafilalet region in Morocco, 6 miles (10 km) from Ouarzazate. The entire Solar Project is planned to produce 580 MW at peak when finished and is being built in three phases and in four parts. Total project expected to cost $9 billion.
The plant will be able to store solar energy in the form of heated molten salt, allowing for production of electricity into the night. Phase 1 comes with a full-load molten salt storage capacity of 3 hours. The planned Phase 2 (Noor 2 and 3 plants), due to open in 2017 and 2018 will store energy for up to eight hours. It will cover an area of 2,500 hectares (6,178 acres).
