This solar thermal plant uses parabolic troughs to generate heat, then steam, then power.

It was featured in the 1997 film Gattaca when Uma Therman and Ethan Hawke have a wildly romantic night out together and end up at a 150-megawatt solar power plant that can generate about 354 megawatts at peak output. Hot stuff.
