Scientists say a unique $189 million electric power plant in California's Mojave Desert is a practical way to generate solar energy even when the sun isn't shining. Mirrors in the plant reflect the sun to molten salt, which is heated to 1,050 degrees and can be used to store the heat for electricity.
