(MCT) — NIPTON, Calif. — Gerald Freeman unlocks the gate to the small power plant and goes inside. Three rows of solar collectors, elevated on troughs that track the sun’s arc like sunflowers, afford a glimpse of California’s possible energy future.
This facility and a smaller version across the road produce some 70 kilowatts of electricity, about 80 percent of the power required by Nipton’s 60 residents, its general store and motel.
