Taipower, Taiwan’s state-run utility, has broken ground today on a 100 MW solar PV plant, which will be the largest on the island once complete.
The NT$6.2 billion (US$212 million) project is located at Changhua Coastal Industrial Park in central Taiwan, and has been sanctioned by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA).
Chunghwa Telecom, a local ICT specialist, will work with Taipower to build the solar plant and provide it with digital connectivity. The completed installation will cover 140 hectares and comprise 339,000 Taiwan-made solar modules.
According to the Taipower press release, the solar farm will be completed across five stages, with final completion scheduled for December this year.
Taipower also revealed plans to build an even larger solar farm in Taiwan – a 150 MW plant that will be located at a former salt mine in the south of the island.
