China's Building "The Biggest Solar Energy Production Base in the Whole World"

The Washington Post reports on Solar Valley, a planned $740 million development outside Dezhou, China, that aims to be the clean energy technology hub of the country, if not the world. It will be anchored by Himin Solar Energy Group, but will accommodate about 100 companies in total. True to form, rural farmers are already being swept out of the way to make room for the developers. It's audacious, but what's China better at than big plans? Oh right, awkward translations. They're calling it "The Biggest Solar Energy Production Base in the Whole World."
