Those Amazing Photovoltaic Power Plants

With the increasing popularity of photovoltaic power plants, solar pv panels can be seen on the roofs of the factory. However, the photovoltaic power plants we see are square. In fact, there are also some power stations that combine photovoltaics and aesthetics, which are full of creativity and become a landscape.
Photovoltaic power stations in the shape of a panda in Datong
The first is the adorable panda photovoltaic power station in China. This is the world's first photovoltaic power station this is in the shape of a panda.

The solar power station in Datong Shanxi is built in the shape of a panda, which is a protected animal in China. The power station is composed of black and white; the black part is composed of monocrystalline silicon solar cells, and the white part is composed of thin film solar cells and N-type double-sided monocrystalline silicon cells. From a bird's-eye view from the sky, the entire power station presents the image of a panda due to the color difference of the solar panels. The Datong Panda Power Plant has an installed capacity of 50MW, using a total of 69,888 295W monocrystalline silicon modules, 94,248 310Wp double-glass double-sided modules and 11,200 115W cadmium telluride thin-film modules.
Photovoltaic power stations in the shape of a heart
In 2014, a special photovoltaic power plant began to build on the largest island of New Cridonia. This solar power station is in the shape of a heart, which is known as the most beautiful solar power station in the world.

This solar power station in the shape of a heart covers an area of ​​40,000 square meters and consists of 7,888 solar panels, and the total power generation can meet the demand for electricity for 750 households. With an expected service life of 25 years, it will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 2 million tons.

Apple Spaceship Photovoltaic Plant
The technology giant Apple has always advocated the use of renewable energy, and its vision is to use 100% renewable energy, and they have been practicing the mission to build multiple photovoltaic power plants around the world. Among them, the most eye-catching is the Apple headquarters, which was built according to Jobs' wishes. It looks like a huge spaceship. The main building uses solar panels, which can generate 17MW of electricity and will be driven entirely by renewable energy.
Photovoltaic power stations in the shape of Disney mickey mouse
Disney is also a company committed to the use of clean energy, and its green plan for solar power plants has been gradually promoted in Disney parks around the world in recent years.
It has built a photovoltaic power station in the shape of Disney's iconic Mickey head image in the United States to supply part of the electricity to Disneyland. The power station contains about 48,000 solar panels with a scale of about 5MW, equivalent to 1,000 household photovoltaic systems.

Power Tower in the shape of the sun
In the desert of southern California, USA, there is a circular photovoltaic power station, which is a solar power generation tower.
The circular array of the power generation tower is surrounded by 1818 reflecting mirrors, with an investment of 260 million US dollars and a designed power generation capacity of 180,000 kilowatts. On the day of the trial operation, the power generation reached 220,000 kilowatts, but unfortunately, the project is only an experimental product and has not been operated commercially due to the high cost of power generation.
