Triangulation: Energy Now on Sale
Triangulation: Energy is the 19th volume of the Triangulation anthology series. The theme is sustainable energy: can we find a way to keep up with—or exceed—our present and future energy consumption levels while keeping our space livable? Or must we lower our expectations and live with less?
My story in this anthology is titled "The Eco-Terrorist." Francisco operates a solar power plant that uses 12,000 heliostatic mirrors to raise the temperature of molten salt to a thousand degrees to generate electricity. He is trained to handle any problem that might arise, but the plant is so automated, all he gets to do is call in the technicians to replace failed parts. But when a strange pickup truck arrives and two men with rifles jump out, Francisco faces a situation that will require ingenuity and quick-thinking to survive.
