China's green Panda Solar Station gains recognition

Updated 2017-01-19 14:59:11 Xinhuanet

China's Panda Solar Station, which calls for teenagers to join in the fight against climate change, has gained recognition from various walks of life in the country.

The solar station project was initiated by China Merchants New Energy (CMNE) and has now gathered 10 leading solar companies and established a dream team.

The first Panda Solar Station laid its foundation in Datong, Shanxi Province, in north China, on Nov. 22, 2016.

It is estimated that the Datong Panda Solar Station will be completed and connected to the grid at the end of June 2017.

The idea of the Panda Solar Station was first raised by Chinese teenager Li Yan Tung Ada. The station adopts both black monocrystalline silicon module and offwhite thin film PV module, making it look like a panda from above, hence the name. The "panda" will be able to smile following the sun's movement.

The Datong Panda Power Station's install capacity will reach 100MW. It can save 1.06 million tons of coal, reduce 2.74 million tons of CO2 emission, 27,400 tons of SO2 emission, 24,000 tons of NOX emission, 1,600 tons of dust emission during its 25 years of power generation.

In the next 5 years, CMNE plans to build 100 panda power stations around the world, according to the company's CEO Li Yuan. In each country, the panda pattern will be combined with local animals, such as koala and rhinoceros.
