World's Largest Floating Solar Plant is now Online

The world’s largest floating solar power plant is now online, in China.

Built by Sungrow, the 40MW floating solar power plant is now successfully linked to Huainan, China’s grid. The plant floats over a flooded former coal-mining region!

Floating solar plants are advantageous because they put useless part of a lake, to produce green energy.

The facility located in the city of Huainan, has a capacity of 40 megawatts (MW), enough to power a small town.
