Clean energy sources are really picking up, as fossil fuels are on a decline and people have become more aware of saving the environment and natural resources. One of the most popular natural sources of energy is sunlight. The facilities to harness its power are being established on a large scale across the world. Countries are setting up solar farms, plants, and tech parks. In fact, there are such innovative examples of facilities that can be termed as solar wonders of the world. Have a look at some such solar wonders here.
