+ - Canada to build 40MW Solar Power plant

Submitted by IceDiver
IceDiver (321368) writes "According to an article in the Toronto Star (http://www.thestar.com/Business/article/207415) an Ontario company has been given approval to build a 40MW solar power plant near Sarnia in Southwestern Ontario. This is enough power for about 10,000 homes. The plant will cover 365 hectares (1.4 sq. miles) and is to be operational by 2010. OptiSolar, the company building the plant, claims to have developed a way to mass produce the solar panels at a dramatically reduced cost, making the plant competitive with other forms of power generation."

The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
