Google is building a solar power project above fishing ponds in Taiwan

Google recently signed its first green deal in Asia, a solar project to be built above fishing ponds in Taiwan.

Building solar projects over water is becoming more common in Asia due to population density and competition for available land.

Worldwide, the floating solar market could reach 400 gigawatts, according to the World Bank. A recent DOE report said 10 percent of U.S. energy supply could come from floating solar power.
