China is now the largest producer of solar power in the world

The National Energy Administration (NEA) officially announced on Saturday that the country's solar power production doubled more than the year 2016.  The capacity for solar power hit 77.42 gigawatts last year.

China is also the leading producer of wind energy. The country intends to invest $364 billion in renewable energy and increase the total production of clean energy to 20 percent by 2030.

National Energy Administration (NEA) plans to add more than 110 gigawatts to the overall photovoltaic capacity installed across the state within the next three years.

China’s geography certainly lends itself to large solar energy farms. Last year, Shandong, Xinjiang, and Henan provinces enjoyed the greatest increase in their solar capacity. This is while Xinjiang, Gansu, Qinghai, and Inner Mongolia ended up with the most overall capacity at the end of 2016, added in its report.
