The milestone solar project for China will be one of the world's biggest

Work to build the biggest solar farm in China has been approved. The 340MW PV project, which will be constructed in Datong Shanxi province, will be one of the largest single-unit solar farms in the world.

The solar project will consist of a 310MW ground-mounted and 30MW root-top solar development. China’s National Energy Beruau has approved firm GCL-Poly to start preparatory work to construct the solar farm, following strong support to the solar industry from the Chinese government.
 
The approval of the project has been regarded as the strongest support to the solar industry from the Chinese govenment since the European debt crisis and the US’s anti-dumping and anti-subsidy cases against Chinese solar products.

Zhu Gongshan, chairman of GCL-Poly, said: “It is a great honour for GCL-Poly to receive the approval on the construction of such large scaled solar farm projects. This shows that the National Energy Bereau has strong confidence and trust in GCL-Poly’s capability to develop solar farm projects. It also demonstrates that the Chinese government’s strong determination to support domestic solar industry. "
