... CSP projects with large structures can also obstruct or reflect radar signals. GLARE VISUAL IMPACT The potential impacts of reflectivity are glint and glare (referred to henceforth just as glare)
From page 16...
... Some building rooftops are being designed with white roofs with a high albedo value to purposefully reflect light and heat, and thereby minimize local trapping of heat referred to as "heat island effect." PV solar panels use silicon to convert sunlight to electricity and silicon is naturally reflective. As a result, all solar panels are designed with a layer of anti-reflective material that allows the sunlight to pass through to the silicon but minimizes reflection.

... . The CEC findings for the Blythe Solar Power Project determined that the project has the potential to adversely impact low-flying aircraft in low wind conditions.
From page 18...
... In September 2010, the CEC issued its Decision on the Application for Certification for the Blythe Solar Power Project. In its review, the CEC assessed many of the potential impacts of CSPs identified in this report.
