World’s Largest Solar Park in Bahawalpur
Pakistan’s first large-scale solar power project, Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park in Bhawalpur, is one of the largest in the world.
The project is expected to start generating 100 MW of power by the end of the year & 1,000 MW by the end of 2016.
The project comprises 400,000 solar panels and was built for a cost of about $ 131 Million. Once completed, the project will generate around 2.5 times the power that the massive 392 MW Ivanpah solar-thermal plant in California does — making it one of the largest solar projects in the world.
