World’s First Panda-Shaped Solar Energy Farm Built in China

Solar Energy Farm

The Panda-Shaped Solar Energy Farm will provide 3.2 billion kilowatt-hour of green electricity in 25 years and is backed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

In a world-first, China has built a large solar farm shaped like the iconic black and white giant panda.

The station will have a have a capacity of 100 MW when fully connected, providing 3.2 billion kilowatt-hour of green electricity in 25 years.

That is equivalent to saving 1.056 million tonnes of coal, or reducing 2.74 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. The panda-shaped power plant, a project backed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), will help get young people to engage with sustainable development.

“Designing the plant in the shape of a panda could inspire young people and get them interested in the applications of solar power,” said Li Yuan, CEO at Chinese company Panda Green Energy that built the station.

Young candidates from around China will be recruited to participate in summer camps at the panda power stations, with a focus on providing them with a deeper understanding of green energies, ‘The Telegraph’ reported.

There are also plans to bring panda power stations to Fiji and the Philippines, with the aim of building 100 across the globe over the next five years.
