Solar Thermal for Electricity
Production of electricity from renewable resources means using water (dams and oceans), wind (turbines) and solar (photovoltaic's and thermal). Nuclear can not be considered a renewable resource as the radioactive material does not renew, nor is there a satisfactory method to dispose of the waste radioactive material. Nuclear does not produce carbon dioxide in the production of electricity however.
Several large scale solar thermal electrical plants are in production today. These plants have an advantage over natural gas and coal plants from a hedging perspective. Once in production, they produce electricity for the same cost per kilowatt, year after year. You never know what the price of natural gas and coal is going to be a year from now.
Putting a price on carbon, such as California's 2006 law AB32 which requires a 25% cut from 2006 emission levels by 2020, makes solar thermal electrical production a hands down winner over coal or gas production!
