Can Anybody Top this Crazy Green Idea?
What is it? it's the side view of a solar peaking plant. With PV panels on the roof of a giant structure that would produce liquid air during periods of low demand, and augmented by solar work like a big energy storehouse that would be called upon during peak demand.
During peak demand the liquid air would be vented into the atmosphere, causing it to snow in the desert in the summer. It could also cause the formation of a permanent snowpack downwind of its' location.
