Huadian Energy completes 1 GW solar farm on salt fields in China


Huadian New Energy Group has finished building a 1 GW solar farm on a salt field in Binhai New District, in the Chinese city of Tianjin, according to the State Council Information Office (SCIO)

The SCIO, which refers to information from the state-run Xinhua news agency, said the Tianjin Binhai Dagujie solar farm was built in several phases. It covers an area of around 1,333.3 hectares and is able to generate approximately 1.5 billion kWh of clean electricity per year. It was connected to the grid last week.

Huadian constructed the facility with a 14-meter spacing plan between panel rows and a module tilt angle of 17 degrees, as reported by CGTN. These parameters were selected by the project developers to minimize the panels' effect on the water surface and enhance salt production.
