China has become notorious for the increasing and near uninhabitable pollution that cloaks the air. In fact, Beijing has a smog problem so extreme that many residents can be seen wearing face masks when the walk outside to protect them from the hazardous pollutants.

In a major first step, the Chinese government constructed the world’s biggest solar panel farm to produce clean, renewable energy for the country. With such an enormous solar farm to manage, the Chinese government had to build the panels to float on water.

“The plant not only makes full use of this area, reducing the demands for lands, but also improves generation due to the cooling effects of the surface,” one government official stated in regards to the solar farm.

The 40 megawatt solar panel farm is just the first step China is making towards reducing their fossil fuel usage. Slowly but surely, China is making strides to reach their goal of cutting fossil fuel use by 20%.
