South Africa to build a 5,000 MW solar park

The main problem with renewables today is scale. Even if they are growing faster and faster, we very rarely see projects that will bring more than a few hundred megawatts to the grids. But it is changing.

Indeed, to CleanTechies, South Africa will soon build a five gigawatt park where technologies in photovoltaic and concentrated solar power will be tested. We are talking about 21.3 billion dollars investment. (15 billion euros)

For more, please refer to the article published by the Agence France Pressed (AFP) today. It brings further details on what might be the world’s largest solar plant.
