Largest solar array in the world planned for India

The world's largest solar energy project is currently in its planning phases, and it looks like it's going to be absolutely enormous. Planned for Gujarat, India, it'll be producing 5 gigawatts of power when all is said and done. That's a serious amount of energy.

The plan is to build an array that's five times the size of the current largest solar project in the world. It'll cost about $475 million to construct, and all the production and manufacturing will be done on site, employing local workers and using local materials. The current largest solar array in the world produces 900 megawatts of power, so this 5 gigawatt plan gives you an idea of its scope.
