10. Copper Mountain Solar Facility, United States

Copper Mountain Solar Facility covers 10 km2 in Boulder City, Nevada, and was developed by Sempra Generation. Copper Mountain powers 18,000 homes with 552MW of power. It might seem surprising to see the US ranking lower in 2018 when it had been the leader of solar energy in 2016 and this is likely the result of President Trump’s imposed tariff on the importation of solar panels in the US in January 2018, which froze some US$2.5bn in projects.
