Floating on a lake over a collapsed coal mine, the power station in Anhui province can produce 40 megawatts of energy.
Built by the company Sungrow Power Supply, the power plant will produce enough energy to power 15,000 homes, Zheng reports.
Anhui province is a coal-rich region, and the Sungrow plant is located on a lake that was once the site of intensive mining. Heavy rains filled the area with water. As Zhen reports, the depth of the lake varies from 12 feet to 30 feet.
