The world's largest solar power station: 300,000 solar panels, birds flying over are burnt

From sun-dried food to the development of various solar by-products, people are paying more and more attention to this low-carbon new energy source. However, various ecological problems have begun. It appears that the birds are scorched when they fly and fly. Why is this?

This is the power of the world's largest solar power station. At the junction of California and Nevada, there is a Mojave Desert, which is a typical basin terrain, so it has a special desert landscape because the climate is particularly dry and is also built. The ideal location for a solar power station.
The Fanpa Solar Power Station is located here. It covers an area of 8 square kilometers and has a total of 300,000 solar mirrors. They are responsible for collecting solar energy for power generation. Each mirror is controlled by a computer, and the collected sunlight is reflected to the top of the 140-meter tower, where the water is heated to become water vapor, providing the driving force for the power vortex of the device. Not long after the power station was put into use, the staff found that the bird people passing through here would be burned.
After testing, it was found that the heat flux on the solar panel reached 537 degrees Celsius. If the angle is accurate, the high temperature generated by focusing sunlight can reach thousands of degrees Celsius, which means that not only the passing birds will be burned, others Wild animals can't escape this claw.
Scientists also pointed out that such a large-scale solar power station has affected the nearby atmospheric circulation and water circulation, and also caused serious light pollution, and even threatened the safety of the flying aircraft. This situation will not happen in China, because China is the world's largest producer of photovoltaic devices, there is no light gathering area, and the above-mentioned hazards will not occur. Solar energy, once considered inexhaustible and inexhaustible, will inevitably cause enormous damage to the ecology if it is used on a large scale.
