The world’s top solar parks

Every year, more and more solar parks are built around the world. It’s impossible to create a ranking of these parks because the situation is constantly changing and existing parks are permanently improved. From the information currently available, this is a list of the photovoltaic power stations:

  • Golmud Solar park, China

It is the largest solar park on the planet at the moment. With a capacity of 200 MW and an annual output of 317 GWh, Golmud produces the same amount of electricity per year as a classic power station burning 120.000 tons of coal (Wikipedia.org).
