White Cliffs Solar Power Station

First Commercial Solar Power Station in the World

The White Cliffs Solar Power Station was the FIRST commercial Solar Thermal Power Station in the World. In this presentation, Electrical Engineer Chris Dahlitz will cover the “three lives” of the Power Station – its initial Solar Thermal iteration, then concentrating photo-voltaic research and finally its current life as a tourist attraction and item of engineering heritage.
