World’s Largest Solar Power Station

ESPENHAIN – The world’s largest solar power station was officially put on stream this week in the eastern German town of Espenhain in a project hailed by Environment Minister Juergen Trittin as advancing the timetable to make the sun’s power cheaper.

The five-megawatt facility, located on a former lignite mine ash deposit, consists of some 33,500 solar modules.

The output equates to the electricity needs of some 1,800 households while sparing the atmosphere of some 3,700 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, officials said.
