PHOENIX, May 9 (UPI) -- The Agua Caliente Solar Project, which was completed last week, is now operational and poised to start churning out power. Once it does, it will officially be the largest working solar panel array in the world.
The plant, which includes more than 5 million solar panels, is expected to pump out 290 megawatts of electricity. Situated in the Arizona desert between the cities of Yuma and Pheonix, the array is twice the size of Central Park. At full capacity, the new plant will be able to power 230,000 houses.
