The Group’s 20MW floating solar power farm in Huainan City, Anhui Province was built on the water surface of a coal mining subsidence area where solar modules were installed on floating bases. After the on-grid connection is completed, this solar farm can annually generate 23 million kWh of electricity on average.

Compared with a conventional solar farm, a floating solar farm does not occupy scarce land resources, can reduce water evaporation and restrain the growth of algae. At the same time, water can be used to cool down solar modules and power cables, and subsequently improve the efficiency of power generation. The construction of this demonstration floating solar farm project has added significant experience for the construction of national high-tech PV bases in coal mining subsidence areas in Huainan and Huaibei. In the future, the Anhui provincial government will actively promote the construction of floating PV stations in these two places.
