China plans to build a wind facility of 43.3 gigawatts, reports Euronews. The city of Chaozhou is behind the project and construction should be underway before 2025.
About a thousand power plants to be included in the park will be placed far out to sea. The location was chosen because it is so windy there that the power plants should be able to produce electricity 43-49 percent of the time according to the forecasts.
To get an idea of how much 43.3 gigawatts is, Euronews makes the comparison that it is enough to generate electricity to light 13 million homes.
The new wind farm brings China one step closer to reaching its goal of being climate neutral by 2060. It is a decade later than, for example, the EU, but at least it is moving in the right direction.
