Largest solar plant opens in US

The largest solar plant in the world opened in the US and is now 100 percent operational. The plant, called Topaz, is located in California and is truly massive in size and energy output. Topaz produces over 500-megawatts—enough energy to power 160,000 homes—spans over nine square miles and is comprised of nine million solar panels. This is an impressive feat but Topaz’s title will be usurped within a year—two more California plants that meet and exceed Topaz’s output are currently underway, slated for a 2015 openings. Is this the dawn of Big Solar?
