HUAINAN CITY, CHINA — A new floating solar farm constructed on a lake in Huainan City, China is said to be the largest in the world.
According to the South China Morning Post, the farm is made up of 160,000 solar panels. These panels reportedly can produce electricity for up to 15,000 homes.
The farm is built over a lake that emerged from a collapsed coal mine, reported Phys.org.
The water from the lake helps cool the panels’ electronics, reported the Smithsonian Mag, citing a Telegraph report on Europe’s largest solar farm.
The farm was linked to Huainan City’s power grid last month, reported the South China Morning Post.
