China’s solar farm is shaped like a panda because why not

November 16, 2017

It looks cool though.

A new solar plant in Datong, China was just revealed the other day that is laid across 248-acres. The first phase of the power plant has just started delivering power to the northwestern region of China.

But that’s not why it’s been getting lots of attention – it’s the solar farm’s design that placed it on the news: it’s shaped like a Panda. Since the Panda is China’s most recognizable animals, it’s just fitting to design the solar farm that way.

China Merchants New Energy Group said that the Panda Power Plant able to produce about 3.2 billion kilowatt-hours of solar energy in next 25 years which proves China’s commitment to sustainable energy. Earlier this year they’ve announced that it is planning to ban fossil fuels and will start the move to electric vehicles.

The Panda Power Plant is just one of many being planned, so expect to see more Panda-shaped power plants in the future.
