It could be the solar energy capitol of the North American continent

Massive desert solar 'colonies' hope to solve energy crisis

Imagine large-scale solar-power plants being built across the Sonoran Desert, along with power lines up to 300 feet high, to export the sun's power to the rest of the West.

That's the ambition of an idea the Western Governors Association and the federal government are studying -- to make Arizona a solar-energy "colony" for 11 other states, two Canadian provinces and Baja California.
