We describe a simple two-dimensional array of plane mirrors operated by only two motors, which collects efficiently Sun light in order to produce electrical power at about the cost of oil. The system preserves the merits of previous state-of-the-art solar power plants but is simpler and by far less expensive. A first prototype has been operated at the Physics Department of the University of Udine providing a power of 0.56 kW per m2 of mirror surface in mid November.
