Vast Solar 1

Vast Solar is developing VS1, a 30 MW Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plant located in Port Augusta, South Australia.  The CSP plant gathers solar energy during the day, stores it as heat in the molten salt tanks, then when required, uses the stored heat to make steam to drive a turbine to generate electricity.
