Its biggest characteristic is the combination of photovoltaic development, desert control and water-saving agriculture. The periphery of the plant is a shelter forest system formed by grass square barrier and sand-fixation forest. Water-saving irrigation facilities are installed under the photovoltaic panels. Green economic crops are planted to achieve economic and ecological benefits of win-win.
Photovoltaic modules board covering direct sunlight effectively reduces the surface water evaporation. Solar panels’ shade effect can reduce evaporation capacity by 30% to 50%, and photovoltaic modules plate can effectively reduce the wind speed. All of above can well improve the living conditions of the plants. Based on the above reasons, many land vegetation grows well, including the grass. And the presence of vegetation, in turn, helps the sand-fixation and water-retaining. Ecological improvement is good for solar power generation. The impact of raised dust on capacity is huge, while the vegetation can reduce dust. As a result, photovoltaic modules board used for sun block generates a new ecological environment, which has an positive effect for desertification control.
Large area of barren hills is not suitable for crop growth, which caused local economic development lag.
The construction of Barren hill solar power plant will provide electricity support for such areas and prevent loss of water. Digging wells for irrigation in low-lying place solves the problem of lack of water. All of these bring vitality to the local people and provide base for economic development.
