Default Re: Ericsson's Solar Hot Air Engine on Display

Those are from just a few years ago but I don't think they were in Arizona. There were some 25KW solar stirling machines operating for one of the power companies in AZ around 2010 but that company could not scale up and compete with cheap solar panels. I don't think there were any in the 1920s but there was a big solar-powered steam engine set up on a farm in Arizona near Phoenix in the early 1900s; it didn't last long and was blown down in a windstorm.
