2,000-MW Solar Power Plant To Be Built In Kazakhstan

 
We wrote yesterday that 2,000 megawatts (MW) of solar power have now been installed in Australia. If you thought that was striking, I think you’ll find this especially striking. The organization Fonrocheenergie SAS has signed an agreement with Kazakh ZhambylGidroEnergo to construct a 2,000 MW (2 GW) solar power plant in Kazakhstan. 2 GW is big, really big! That’s 2 billion watts.

The project is to be located in the southern region of the country, and the first €80 million phase of it will be 24 MW. This translates to a cost of €3.33 per watt of the first phase of the project.

The construction of this plant is slated to begin next year.
