India Unveils The World's Largest Solar Power Plant
November 30, 2016
India is on schedule to be the world's third biggest solar market next year.
Images have been released showing the sheer size of a new solar power plant in southern India. The facility has a capacity of 648 MW and covers an area of 10 sq km, making it the largest solar power plant at a single location, taking the title from the Topaz Solar Farm in California, which has a capacity of 550 MW.
The solar plant, built in an impressive eight months and funded by the Adani Group, is cleaned every day by a robotic system, charged by its own solar panels.
At full capacity, it is estimated to produce enough electricity to power about 150,000 homes.
By 2022, India aims to power 60 million homes by the sun. It is part of the government's goal to produce 40 percent of its power from non-fossil fuels by 2030.
