Oil fields, Coalinga California

While driving back from an assignment, I drove through Coalinga, California, in the Central Valley, which is several hours north of Los Angeles. And, I accidentally found thèse oil fields, owned by Chevron. What drew me, though, was the solar array you see pictured hère. The sun is reflected onto that tower, turning water into steam, which, in turn, makes the extraction of the oil much easier to suck out, loosening it like molasses in the hot afternoon sun.
