    The turbine is spun by a motive fluid that becomes a vapor when it hits the heat exchanger. Sort of like a refrigeration cycle, but in reverse.

    I've done several gas turbine plants too. They're called 'peaking plants', because they use natural gas in the summer when it's cheap, and when the demand for electricity is high. They operate only when demand peaks, hence 'peaking plant;.

    I thought it may of been a new plant built for peak demand, sort of a guess since you are out on the distant edge of Reno and they may build those loud plants on the outskirts.

    I do think in the past you may of mentioned geothermal now that you mention it.

    It's interesting that it has a single generator. I guess because it's NV and there are no huge swings in the aquifer that would allow for more or less source water?

    That is probably better value than the cheap coffee sold for a lot of money. Plus there bedazzled mugs.

    That's understandable. Water Parks are a blast for kids, but they grow up. At least as you say your getting out of town.

    Oh I have a frappachino on occasion. And I love the hot apple spice thing they do in the winter.

    And speaking of bedazzled mugs... I got a email since I'm a "gold card" member... they have where you can pre order an exclusive limited edition Swarovski Pumpkin Spice Latte Tumber....

    FOR $150.00!!!!! I don't think so. First of all... its ugly. And second of all... if I had $150 to blow on something it wouldn't be on some stupid tumber...

    Somehow I never learned "those" words in Spanish...

    I actually got all the way through school including getting my AA without doing any foreign language.
