Overseas: Germans Building Massive Solar Power Plant

Construction on a 40 megawatt solar power plant is under way at a former military base in the Saxon region of Germany. The total surface area of the planned photovoltaic installation is comparable to about 200 soccer fields. When completed in 2009, the project will be the largest photovoltaic project ever constructed. Currently the biggest PV plant in the world has an output capacity of around 12 megawatts.
