Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But would a solarthermal plant as you describe it be really different from, say, a natural gaz turbine plant?

In terms of physics and engineering, I don't see where the difference would lay.

(Obviously in the heating system, but that doesn't have any need for mechanical parts, so low maintenance, and probably simpler than combustion chamber anyway)
