Nev. plant solves quandary of how to store sunshine

The plant last month reached full commercial operation, marking a major step in efforts to integrate renewable energy into the nation's power grid. Grid operators say the plant's salt storage technology is a potential game changer that lets solar plants mimic the around-the-clock reliability of a coal, gas or nuclear power plant.
