Popular science- GE to build hybrid plant ( solar, wind and natural gas)

First Hybrid Power Plant Will Combine Solar, Wind and Natural Gas

By Rebecca Boyle
A new hybrid power plant to be built in Turkey will combine a traditional gas-fired steam turbine with solar thermal power and wind power, according to GE. It’s a step toward integrating renewable sources into the traditional power grid, using steam and mirrors.
The solar component is a field of sun-tracking mirrors that will focus sunlight on a tower to produce steam, which will be fed into the steam turbine to increase the plant’s output. A small wind farm connected to the plant will provide another 22 megawatts of power.
