In recent years, Huainan city authorities have been exploring a development model which combines fishery with the photovoltaic industry to help boost local residents' income. With a total investment exceeding 1 billion yuan (about 155 million U.S. dollars), a 150-megawat floating solar farm was established in a coal mining subsidence area. The facility has a better power generation efficiency compared to land-based photovoltaic power stations. (Xinhua/Huang Bohan)
