Kunming Shilin Solar Power plant is the largest photovoltaic power plant in China. The plant located about 70 kilometers southeast of Kunming.

The Kunming Shilin Solar Power plant project will cost RMB 9.1 billion (yuan) and will be built in the town of Shilin in Kunming Shilin Yi Autonomous County. It will be divided into a popular science zone and experimental demonstration zone generating 77 million kilowatt hours and 118 kilowatt hours a year each. Shilin-based solar energy photovoltaic power station will have a capacity of 166MW and will be China's largest one upon completion. The solar power plant, which will be entirely completed in 2015, is designed to generate 195 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year, reducing 175,000 tons of carbon dioxide emission.
