World's Biggest Solar Plant to Be Built in China


A company with headquarters in Arizona recently announced about its plans to build the largest solar plant on the planet. The 2,000 megawatt plant is expected to be constructed in Ordos, China in 2019. According to engineers the plant will generate electricity enough to power 3 million homes.

It is worth mentioning that thanks to this project, China, which is currently the second biggest energy-consuming country, could become one of the most important nations in terms of solar energy production.
