The world’s largest hydro-floating solar farm has begun generating power in Thailand. Here’s how the hybrid system works. A floating solar farm that’s equivalent to about 70 soccer fields in size has begun generating power in Thailand, reflecting the country’s push to achieve carbon neutral status by 2050. The facility in Sirindhorn reservoir, about 660 kilometers (410 miles) east of the capital city Bangkok, is the world’s largest hydro-floating solar hybrid system, which combines two methods of electricity generation, according to state-run Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand. While 145,000 solar panels harness power from the sun during the day, three turbines convert energy from flowing water at night. The floating solar farm at the Sirindhorn Dam in Thailand. The $34 million solar farm, which joined the grid on Oct. 31, is the first of 16 projects planned in key Thai reservoirs, with a combined capacity of 2.7 […]
