List of the 7 largest photovoltaic solar power plants in the world


7. TENGGER DESERT SOLAR PARK: Largest solar farm in the world
Location: China
Site Area: 43 square kilometers
Output: 1,547 MW

Known as the “Great Wall” of solar power, the Tengger Desert Solar Park is the largest solar farm currently in existence. Located in China’s Tengger Desert, the solar field occupies only 3.25 percent of the arid land in the region. That might not sound that big, but it’s actually more than 10 times larger than New York’s Central Park and is capable of producing 1.5 Gigawatts of power, rivaling the power capacity of most nuclear power plants. With plenty of room to expand, we expect Tengger to be a top solar power producer for years to come.
