Gulf to get first solar-power plant

In Aljazeera today:
Abu Dhabi is to build a $350m solar power plant, the first of its kind in the Gulf, according to an investor in the project.

The 500-megawatt plant, expected to be complete by 2009, is part of Abu Dhabi's drive to reduce dependence on hydrocarbon power, eventually hoping to provide solar-powered electricity to 10,000 homes.
