By Staff reporter 11 July 2017

South Korea’s Rural Community Corp. has revealed plans to build up to 280 MW of floating solar capacity at three sites in the country by 2019, according to PV Magazine.

The projects could be among the largest floating solar PV arrays in the world, with power generation expected to offset 160,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year.

They will be positioned on two lakes near the city of Dangjin in Chungcheongnam province.
