Biggest solar plant in the world - SOLAR SERDAR

The biggest solar plant in the world

In today's era, when Global warming is on its high, Portugal, a small country in Southern Europe, is taking a bold stake in renewable energies. Thanks to the "great Portuguese sun", Portugal is now home of the world's biggest and most powerful solar energy plant. The 11-megawatt plant (located near Serpa, a small town in the country's southern province of Alentejo) with its 52,000 photovoltaic modules, which producing 20 gigawatt hours of power each year delivers enough electricity to power 8,000 homes, is a part of Portugal's plan to produce 45 % of its electricity from renewable energy sources. Apart from solar energy, Portugal is also turning to wind and wave power to reduce its oil imports and meet its international commitments to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, having in this matters one of the most ambitious targets in the world.More info at
If God has given to the Portuguese no oil, they will have to suffice only with their wind, their sun and their waves -- and it seems that with more than 305 days of sun per year, and 1250 km of Atlantic coastline they are just about to make it.
