As if it took this long to realize that people walking around in masks surrounded by smog was a concern, China are finally making changes to their energy efforts.

One way they’re tackling this issue is through the new floating solar farm that happens to be the world’s largest.

In an ironic manner, the new solar farm sits on top of an old flooded coal-mining town. The flooded element is key to the production. Experts say that the cool surface of the water will improve energy generation.

This is the start of a huge Chinese effort to tackle the damage they’ve already done. With billions set to be invested in clean energy projects, China could go from the biggest culprit to the world’s leaders in the green movement.

China alone are responsible for 50% of the world’s polution problem, therefore this effort will certainly be a welcoming move for the rest of the globe.

The new structure has the potential to power 15,000 homes generating 40 megawatts of electricity. This beats out the previous largest structure based in London that produced 6 megawatts.
