So there is a town that sits in a valley and gets zero direct sun for 84 days of the year. And now they have installed a 25 foot mirror to mend this problem.



Awesome!

Apparently, a computer controls the position of the mirror throughout the day. I think that the whole idea could have heaps of awesome use in alternative energy solar stuff.
