The world’s largest solar plant has been unveiled by India with the facility in Kamuthi, Tamil Nadu, having a capacity of 648 MW and covers an area of 10 sq km.
Images of the solar plant have been released showing the sheer size of a new facility in southern India.
This makes it the largest solar power plant at a single location, taking the title from the Topaz Solar Farm in California, which has a capacity of 550 MW.
The solar plant, built in an impressive eight months and funded by the Adani Group, is cleaned every day by a robotic system, charged by its own solar panels.
At full capacity, it is estimated to produce enough electricity to power about 150,000 homes.
