GE will use some of their latest technology such as GE's new FlexiEfficiency gas turbine which its a jet engine to power a generator to produces power and heat exhaust to make steam. While eSolar will perform the entire integration of solar power.

Solar energy will be used to run a boiler to generate steam. It also would be equipped with 25,000 computer controlled mirrors for boiling the water in the tank. Meanwhile, wind turbines and gas generator driven by natural gas will be connected to the power plant grids.
