The Gansu Dunhuang Solar Park is a 50-megawatt (MW) photovoltaic power station located in the Gansu Province, in China. All of the modules, which range from 230 to 240 watts, are mounted at a fixed tilt angle of 38°. It is located in the Photoelectricity Park of Dunhuang City.[2] China's first solar power plant, 10 MW, was built here and commissioned on 30 September 2009. An additional 95 MW is expected in 2013, and 5,000 MW by 2020.[3]
