the most beautiful solar power plant in the world

Who Said Solar Energy Can’t Be Beautiful? The inhabitants of New Caledonia will show us how the most beautiful solar park on the planet can be. The heart-shaped solar farm will provide 2 megawatts of green power for 750 homes on the Pacific Island, reducing carbon emissions while enhancing the natural beauty of the plant’s surroundings.

A local beverage company called Froico SA, has commissioned this impressive solar farm, which is being built by Conergy, and is expected to start generating electricity next year. They are building the plant to help reduce the French territory’s dependence on overseas, and by the time the plant reaches the end of its useful life in 25 years, it should have saved around 2 million tonnes of emissions.

Voh's heart

The shape of the plant is inspired by a nearby mangrove swamp that naturally grew in the shape of a heart, known as the “Heart of Voh”. “The Heart of Voh is very important for the inhabitants of New Caledonia, and it shows how extraordinary nature can be, ”said the director of Conergy. “The Solar Heart of New Caledonia will be a benchmark in terms of clean energy production.”
