    yes, lets increase the use of heavy industry. We can build solar panels every day, every hour of the day, a week, all year. We must build and build and build, that will save the world, building more stuff that dont work.

    Well now, there are a bunch of nation and companies that totally disagree with you. Guess we see who is correct in the coming years. LOL

    Quick Facts
    • There are nearly 6,000 major solar projects currently in the database, representing roughly 70 GW of capacity.
    • The list shows that there is over 20.5 GWac of major solar projects currently operating.
    • There remains an enormous amount of capacity in the pipeline, with over 49 GW of PV and CSP projects either under construction or under development.

    A lot of solar power coming online.

    This article has been Updated on 6/27/17

    *As of June 2017 China and India have taken over as the leading developers of large scale solar projects.

    U.S. demand for solar power is surging despite an economic recession, thanks to government financial incentives, some easing in credit availability, and increasing public recognition of its environmental benefits. Although the largest utility scale plants are outside the United States, 2 Plants currently in construction in California and New Mexico will balance the European dominance in large scale solar utility projects.

    And this is just the start.

    Once again Old Crock's link proves old crock is a liar!
    Ivanpah? You produce a list that states Ivanpah is thee largest Solar Power plant in the world? Ivanpah is a complete failure!!! Ivanpah now operates as a natural gas boiler! So your list is of all failed, solar plants, installed power, in theory! Complete utter bullshit. Ivanpah is not operating, today, tomorrow, or yesterday. Ivanpah is 3 solar plants. How many other failed solar plants are on the list. I picked out three in 3 seconds. Old crock is lousy liar.

    So, out of 6000, you pick Ivanpah. Funny as hell. So Ivanpah has taught us that route to solar power is not an easy on. However, there are gigawatts of PV solar power already in, and much more on the way.

    California invested heavily in solar power. Now there's so much that other states are sometimes paid to take it

    Not long ago, solar was barely a rounding error for California’s energy producers.

    In 2010, power plants in the state generated just over 15% of their electricity production from renewable sources. But that was mostly wind and geothermal power, with only a scant 0.5% from solar. Now that overall amount has grown to 27%, with solar power accounting for 10%, or most of the increase. The solar figure doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands of rooftop solar systems that produce an additional 4 percentage points, a share that is ever growing.

    California has to import more electricity every year. Despite the nonsensical claims you make old crock. California imports about a quarter of its electricity on average - Today in Energy - U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)

    Why bother when we have so much oil, natural gas and coal?
