Solar farms are nothing new , the first 1MW farm was installed in Hesperia, California at the end of 1982, followed in 1984 by a 5.2 MWp installation in Carrizo Plain. Both have been decommissioned but hundreds have followed.
In 2010 Sarnia Ont briefly had the largest solar power plant in the world coming in at 97 MW.
Albertas largest is about 3MW however there are plans for projects in Alberta as big as 80MW.
Southern Alberta is a vast area that contains some of the best solar resources in the world.
If 1000 Watts of solar modules are connected and contain the following parameters.
