    The world's largest floating solar energy plant built by China.

    Here is the world's largest solar power array built by China.


    The world's largest floating solar power plant is now online in China. Built by Sungrow, a supplier of PV inverter systems, the 40MW plant is now afloat in water 4 to 10 metres deep, and successfully linked to Huainan, China's grid.

    The placement was chosen in large part because the area was previously the location of coal mining operations, and as a result, the water there is now mineralised and mostly useless.




    Almost as a direct insult to Donald Trump here we see the Chinese really trying to adopt the renewables while that idiot pulls America out of the Paris accord.

    Wow, that's what I call spectacular.

    The only thing I might be concerned about is how it will withstand high winds and even hurricanes.

    If China keeps going the way that it is trying to go at the moment it will probably finish up more green than any of the other countries of the world.

    It will be interesting to watch just how it develops over the coming years.

    Yes, finding places to install such large photovoltaic arrays is not easy, but this one is the biggest so far.

    I never thought I would congratulate China for anything, but they are due congratulations for this.
