Australia is to build a floating solar power plant to feed a water treatment facility near Jamestown. The plant is expected to be efficient enough to produce some extra juice for the city itself.
The construction of the plant is about to begin and is expected to be completed by early April, ABC reported.
The project aims to have most of the work done on land and offsite. An array of photovoltaic panels mounted on buoyant tubular structures will be slotted together at the facility. Most of the electrical equipment will remain on shore.
