A SPANISH company is behind the world’s biggest solar plant that has just opened in the USA.

Abengoa has successfully completed installation of the 280 megawatts commercial solar farm in Solana, Arizona.

America currently generates less than one per cent of its energy from the sun, but with the new farm more than 70,000 households will be supplied with electricity during the day.

The solar field covers an area of approximately 800 hectares and cost approximately €1.5 billion to develop.
