The world’s largest solar power plants are located in China and India.

As the need for an energy transition advances in the world, projects related to solar energy generation are becoming more and more frequent. In fact, In Colombia Enel completed the construction of the La Loma Solar Park, the largest in the country and the photovoltaic project that supplies the most energy to the National Interconnected System.

For this reason, we bring you the ranking of the 15 plants of solar energy biggest in the world.

In solar energy generation, there are two countries that have led the implementation of solar plants with higher megawatt capacities and These are China and India, according to Statista data.

Among the five largest power plants in the world is the Bhadla Solar Park in India; This plant has a capacity of 2,245 megawatts. The Huanghe Hydropower Hainan Solar Park in China, with a capacity of 2,200 megawatts, is in second place. In third place is Pavagada Solar Park, in India, with 2,050 megawatts, followed by Benban Solar Park, in Egypt and Tengger Desert Solar Park, in China with capacities of 1,650 megawatts, 1,547 megawatts, respectively.

Although Bhadla in India is the largest solar park in the world, the largest producer of solar energy globally is China. For something too This country has four of the plants that enter this list with the highest capacity.

The Middle East has also stood out for having three of the largest and newest plants in this industry corresponding to the Benban Solar Park in Egypt, the Mohammed Solar Park and the Noor Abu Dhabi Solar Power Plant in the United Arab Emirates.

For its part, Mexico, being the only country in Latin America that has a solar energy plant in this list of the largest in the world, has the Villanueva Solar Park in Mexico with a capacity of 828 megawatts, followed by the United States Solar Copper Mountain plants (802 MW) in Nevada and the Mount Signal Solar Park (794 MW) in California, which are the largest plants on the continent.
