This incredible project consists of a 300-story tall tower, surrounded by 624 solar panels, producing enough energy to “power 60,000 homes.” Video after the jump. Here’s how it works:

..the solar panels, a 120m2 mixture of mirrors and photovoltaics, track the sun throughout the year, reflect the energy of the sun to solar receptor at the top of the tower. Water passes through pipes at the top, and is heated enough to turn it into steam by the solar receptor, which in turn passes through a series of turbines to produce electricity
