PS10 Solar Tower . Entry from Praeclari Miles for category "Lego Architecture" in the 2010 MOC Athalon. . I realize I have chosen a lesser known structure, which may put me at a disadvantage. However, the idea of an almost 400ft tall monolith that creates enough electricity to power 6,000 homes is just too cool to pass up. Read more and see a reference picture at the wiki here . Basically, a lot of mirrors are focused on one point. The heat from the combined energy is enough to convert water to steam. The resulting pressure powers a turbine, which generates electricity. Since its power comes from the sun, this structure has zero (0) emissions. I tried plenty of techniques to try to get the smoothness and proportion right but nothing seemed to work as well as just good ol' studs up. Too simple? You decide.
