111 - Cresent Dunes Capacity Factor

Charts 106 through to 115 will be a series based on data from the United States Energy Information administration, with 108 to 115 focusing on solar thermal power stations in the US (South Australia just had an announcement about a big new solar thermal power station).

Crescent Dunes is a US solar thermal plant quite similar to SA's proposed facility, to be built by the same company, Solar Reserve. It's seen some major downtime since late last year, but is reportedly up and running now. The chart below shows monthly capacity factor.
