Asia's Largest Solar Power Plant in Taiwan

According to The China Post, Asia’s largest high-concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) power plant has been powered up in Taiwan, and it is expected to save up to 700 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Established by the Institute of Nuclear Energy Research, the power plant sits on a two-hectare site and is capable of producing over 100MW of clean renewable power annually. The plant features 141 solarpanels with solar tracker technology, which concentrates solar lenses toward the sun, making the panels more efficient. Southern Taiwan receives more than 300 days of sunlight annually, making it an ideal place to harvest renewable energy.
