Sandia National Laboratories/New Mexico (SNL/NM) proposes to install Amonix solar systems at the National Solar Thermal Test Facility (NSTTF). The proposed activities would involve the installation of 7 to 9 solar arrays at the NSTTF. Each 72-feet (ft) by 49-ft array would be mounted onto a large steel pipe, anchored into a concrete pedestal; approximately 6-ft in diameter. Each pipe would extend 18-ft into the ground and 20-ft in height from ground level. Each array would be spaced 110-ft North to South and 140-ft East to West on center.
