Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project, Nevada, USA
SolarReserve’s Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Facility located in Nevada is the first utility-scale facility in the world to feature advanced molten salt power tower energy storage capabilities. The project delivers enough firm, reliable electricity from solar energy to power 75,000 homes in Nevada during peak demand periods, day and night, whether or not the sun is shining. The project, which entered into commercial operation in late 2015 and delivers 110 megawatts of electricity plus 1,100 megawatt-hours of energy storage, is the only operating utility scale molten salt power tower on the planet.

Like so many towns on the Adriatic, Monopoli's history has been thoroughly influenced by its east-facing position and its fortified sea-front walls and castle tell many a story.
Parking in or around Piazza XX Settembre, location of a colourful street market, head east towards the cathedral. To find it just look upwards and you are sure to see its elegantly conceived bell tower thrusting into the sky. Built in 1693, the tower is over 60 metres high, completely dominating the town below.
