Longyangxia solar power plant.

Blue squares in an otherwise empty desert demarcate one of the world’s largest solar power plants. The solar portion of the Longyangxia hydro-solar project, located in China’s Qinghai Province, generates up to 320 Megawatts of power. Construction took only 9 months, from its start in March 2013 to testing in December. Image rights: Planet Labs.
