Largest Solar Farm Opens to Sunny Skies

Share this on:

jumilla_solar_farm.jpgSunny southern Spain is the home of this massive photovoltaic solar farm which will produce enough clean energy to power the equivalent of 20,000 homes.  It may look a bit like an environmental eye sore, but consideration was given to the local flora and fauna habitat.  It’s an interesting concept, but I think I prefer photovoltaics to be integrated into roofing, arbors and overhangs.

    Hi,
    I think that every single solar farm is good for our planet. Sure, I agree with you that solar panels integrated into the roof are more pretty…. -:)

    But projects like this are far more efficient for now… Hope to see more solar farms like this. Germany is one of the countries where you can see the progress in Renewables. I wrote an article about a one of the biggest installation in Germany here: http://www.best-solar-energy.com/solar-cells/the-largest-photo-voltaic-installation-in-the-world-is-located-near-arnstein-germany/
