The park will utilise 510,000 panels of single-crystal silicon photovoltaic cells, manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric and SunPower and will generate enough electricity to power 38,000 average households a year, reducing annual carbon dioxide emissions by around 70,000 tonnes.

The plant is expected to cost around $500m, according to reports by Bloomberg with a completion date set for November 2015.
