... • Concentrating Solar Power Plants -- Concentrating solar power utilizes mirrors to focus and intensify the sun's heat to boil water and drive a traditional steam turbine for the production of electricity. • Wind Turbine Generators and Farms -- Wind turbine generators convert energy from wind to electricity either as single units or multiple units also known as farms.

... . Ivanpah Solar Power Project Commission Decision Thermal Plume Turbulence Concentrating solar power Traditional power plants Australian Method (4.3 m/s velocity signifies potential impact)
From page 4...
... • Turbulence from Thermal Plumes -- Thermal plumes are created by power plants using dry cooling systems releasing hot air that rises at a measurable rate and causes air turbulence. Unlike a vapor plume, that turbulence cannot be perceived by a pilot, which increases the potential risk to aviators.
