Mingus Solar Project
|Location||Yizhu Township, Chiayi County, Taiwan|
|Commercial Operation Date||30-July, 2019|
The Mingus Solar Project is the largest ground mount utility scale solar project in Taiwan, consisting of 200,000 photovoltaic modules that span an area approximately 80-hectres. Nestled in salt plains of Chiayi County in Taiwan, the project is capable of producing over 90-gigawatt hours (GWh) of renewable energy annually. Built by a workforce of about 600 local workers, the project will meet the electricity demands of approximately 19,000 households, while reducing around 56,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, and saving up to 349,017-litres of water per year. Vena Energy committed significant resources to conduct enhanced impact assessment and mitigation planning for habitats, shorten the construction period so that it would not affect the winter migratory season and reserved an area of approximately 24.1-hectares for the Ecological Conservation Area, so that local wildlife including waterfowls can flourish.
