The World’s largest mega solar farm built in morocco went functional this week

Ouarzazate in Morocco is famous as a setting for big Hollywood blockbusters such as ‘The Mummy’, ‘Game of thrones’ and even ‘Lawrence of Arabia’, but today it has achieved world fame for another blockbuster – “NOOR”, the world’s largest CSP solar farm. Surprising as it may seem, Morocco has successfully built a colossal solar plant with a projected capability of an amazing 580 megawatts of power.

Commissioned in May 2013, Noor 1 is the first phase of the mega solar plant, which was inaugurated by Moroccan King Mohammed the VI. It went live earlier this month with the incredible capacity of generating power to a million homes. Its current capacity is 160MW of power.
