The Largest Solar Farm On Earth

largest solar farm

China has the largest solar farm energy capacity than any other country in the world, which is approximately gargantuan 130 gigawatts. If they generate electricity at once, they can power the UK several times.

 If you fly over Datong County, a region in northern China, you’ll see two giant pandas. One of them is waving at you. These pandas are made of thousands of solar panels.

Together, or with other adjacent panels included, they form a 100-megawatt farm covering 248 acres. By china’s standard, it a relatively small solar park. This park is designed and built as the image of Chinese national treasure, the Panda, explains a document from pandas green energy.

At this point, this project has cost many millions of dollars to build. On the initial stage, this project costs 6bn Yuan and is continuously expanding since construction.

China is the world’s largest manufacturer of Solar panel technology. According to the International Energy Agency, more than 60% of solar panels are made in China. The Chinese government has a clear economic interest, as there is a high demand for solar panels in the world.

Panda Green Energy has plans to start many more solar farms in China that look like a black and white bear from the air. The primary goal of the firm is Panda 100 Program. The designers of the firm have also picked up two different photovoltaic cells, dark and light ones, to maximize the panda marking. 

Several largest solar farms are currently under construction in many countries. As they get near to the completion, they may earn the title for the world’s largest solar park. Many of these solar parks have a clear link to China.

The company also aims to build its stunning solar parks in other countries. Liu points out that those solar panels are going to be cheaper. It will be between three to five years before solar panels are cheap enough to build without subsidy, he says.

With China including practically 50% of the worldwide solar limit a year ago, they have made an understood position in their goal to be a worldwide innovator in the energy change. Despite your thoughts on energy transition, the street will be paved soon, by the United States or any other country.  Solar Energy resource is becoming more popular. In the upcoming years, this going to produce a huge profit. You can also start your own business if you want to be a millionaire.

However, the question is, should these giant solar parks continue to be built? The solar panel lasts approx. Thirty years, after this time they should be broken. It is difficult to recycle them because they carry harmful chemicals like Sulphuric acid.

We expect that they will find a plan to handle the wastes of Solar panels.
