Power Construction Corp of China has launched a solar farm the size of NYC!

State-owned company Power Construction Corp of China has launched a 5GW solar grid power plant in China. The solar firm is the world’s biggest solar farm, almost equal to the size of New York.

The solar panels in this farm are installed over a vast spread of land and generate over 6 billion kilowatt hours annually. Solar power of this scale is enough to provide power to a country for one whole year!
Currently, China is the largest contributor to the global green energy industry and aims at rapid decarbonization. The International Energy Agency in a report stated, β€œChina accounts for almost 60 per cent of new renewable capacity expected to become operational globally by 2028.”
This is heartening news indeed! If more companies start thinking in this direction, it is not difficult for each company to achieve their NDCs.

    Great initiative. However they should be situated where the land is not agricultural productive.

                  My reservation is what the land was, or would have been, used for without the solar panels? Vast solar farms are fine as long as they are not causing deforestation/loss of biodiversity.

                        @Rachel_353 solar energy facilities can displace species both through habitat destruction and avoidance behaviour thus its always encouraged to consider beforehand the installation.
