The World's Largest Solar Farm Begins Operation In China – An Area Of 100,000 Football Fields

The world's largest solar power farm has begun operations in Xinjiang, China this week. It has a capacity of 5 GW and covers an area of ​​200,000 acres and produces 6.09 billion kWh of electricity annually. This equates to almost 100,000 in football and meets 4% of Malaysia's annual energy needs.

The location of the farm is near Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang in the desert region. The previous record was held by the Golmud Wutumeiren solar complex also located in China with a capacity of 3 GW. China is the most active country in developing solar farms to meet the target of becoming a carbon neutral country by 2060.

This is also one of the reasons why China now leads the world in the production and use of EVs. This is part of an effort to remove the label of China as a polluting country for being the world's factory since the 1990s.
