Seoul will launch a Seoul Solar Power Plant construction project to build the largest solar power plant in the metropolitan area.

The Seoul Solar Power Plant, scheduled for completion in November, is expected to be able to produce some 43-hundred kilowatts of power on a daily basis, which translates into some one-point-six million kilowatts annually.

Once the plant begins operations, the nation is expected to see a reduction of some 989 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually.

Before 2020, the Seoul Metropolitan Government plans to be capable of supporting some 100-thousand households with power from fuel cells and hot water through the use of solar energy.
