Singapore To Test World's Largest Floating Solar Farms

By

Singapore, a country with over 5.5 million people, is out of space to develop new ideas. They’ve been looking underground to give them more space, but for the addition of a solar farm, that would be a hard thing to accomplish. Still wanting to add a large amount of renewable energy, they’ve decided to look out into a nearby reservoir for additional room.

The Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore will be testing out various designs of solar farms that can float along their territory. Whatever design works best will be expanded into a full-fledged solar farm that will have a capacity of up to four gigawatts. Even during the testing period, they should be able to pull in enough renewable energy to power over 250 apartments in the city.
