    Or you can build a larger solar trough and add some heat storage tanks and forget about the coal altogether. Solar concentrating with heat storage is the only system which can be used to replace base load.

    We need to stop burning coal because of the environmental and health damages that comes with it. I am for solar pre-heating but would prefer it was used with natural gas power plants. The storage requirement for solar power and wind power is a red herring since hydropower can be used to back solar and windpower up to 20% of our needs and quick start gas turbines for the rest.
