In this video a amateur home inventor turns on his self funded concentrated solar thermal dish. The 12 kilowatt collector is fairly powerful. It is amazing what can be built at home if you have the initiative and very few neighbors within 10 miles.
I hope he makes this into a commercial unit someday and makes some money on his clean energy hobby.
