Abu Dhabi will have constructed the world’s largest single-unit solar power plant by the end of this year (2012) cranking out a whopping 100 MW of power during the start of 2013 with the intent of powering 20,000 homes. This project is known as Shams 1 and with its completion there will come Shams 2 & 3.

The largest single-unit solar power plant in the world is expected to be completed by the end of 2012 and officially open in the first quarter of 2013, solar power giant Masdar has announced. Shams 1 will have a generation capacity of over 100 MW of power, and was built with the stated purpose of providing 20,000 homes in the region with electricity. The project will be followed shortly thereafter by Shams 2 & 3, which are planned to generate similar levels of electricity.
