The Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park is a large photovoltaic power plant in Olmedilla de Alarcón, Spain. When completed in July 2008, it was the world's largest photovoltaic power plant. The plant uses more than 270,000 solar photovoltaic panels to generate 60-85 megawatts (peak). It produces enough electricity to power more than 40,000 homes.
Olmedilla was built with conventional solar panels, which are made with silicon wafers.
