Construction Begins On 200 MW Solar Project In Gobi Desert — China’s Largest Solar Energy Facility To Date

Construction has now begun on the 200 megawatt (MW) solar energy project being developed in China’s Gobi Desert, according to recent reports. The facility is currently slated to be the largest solar energy project in the country once completed — with a nameplate capacity of 200 MW, and a project area of 2,550 hectares.

Once completed, the 200 MW facility in Qinghai province is expected to produce enough electricity to provide for the needs of up to 1 million regional households — according to Qinghai Solar-Thermal Power Group. The facility is also expected to reduce regional coal use by 4.26 tones a year — thereby offsetting carbon dioxide emissions of 896,000 tonnes, and sulphur dioxide emissions by 8,080 tonnes a year.
