China starts building largest solar plant

China has started to build its largest solar plant which spreads over 2,550 hectares in the Gobi desert.

The plant will be developed in the Qinghai province and will be installed with a capacity of 200 megawatts which can supply 1 million households with electricity.

“Its designed heat storage is 15 hours, thus, it can guarantee stable, continual power generation,” Xinhua quoted group board chair Wu Longyi as saying.

Upon completion the plant will cut coal use by 4.26 million tonnes per year, reducing Co2 emissions by 896,000 tonnes.
