The Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park is a large photovoltaic power plant in Olmedilla de Alarcón, Spain. When completed in July 2008, it was the world's largest photovoltaic power plant.[1][2] The plant uses more than 270,000 solar photovoltaic panels to generate 60 megawatts (peak).[3] It produces enough electricity to power more than 40,000 homes.[4]

Construction of the plant cost €384 million (US$530 million).[1][5]
