    MOROCCO BUILDING MEGA-SOLAR

    Morocco Is Building The Largest Solar Power Plant The World Has Ever Seen

    Chloe Olewitz, October 28, 2015 (Digital Trends)

    “…[Quarzazate, Morocco] is also about to become the home to the largest consolidated solar power plant in the world…[T]hrough a combination of solar, hydro, and wind power, Morocco will source more than half of its energy from renewable sources by the year 2020. Currently, Morocco imports 94% of its energy as fossil fuels from resource-rich regions around the world…Such a high import level is costly, [especially for a mostly desert land and] solar has started to look like an enormous environmental and economic opportunity…The first phase, Noor 1, involves the installation of more than 500,000 mirrors arranged in 800 rows to track the sun as it passes across the desert sky each day…Noor 2 and 3 are scheduled to begin in 2017. The final four plants that will make up the completed [$9 billion] renewable energy complex by 2020 will take up as much space as Morocco’s capital city of Rabat…[and will] generate up to 580 Megawatts of electricity…” click here for more
