Milan Trade Fair Will Feature World's Largest Rooftop Solar Array

The city of Milan will soon be home to a 2.9 million-square-foot, 18-MW solar array atop the Milan Trade Fair.  The array will become the largest rooftop array in the viagra one a day world, surpassing the current record-holder, a 12-MW array on the General Motors factory in Zaragoza, Spain.

In comparison, the largest rooftop array in the U.S. is the 2.37-MW array on the Atlantic City Convention Center.

The massive array is expected to original brand cialis be completed by the end of 2010 and for a price of $97-111 million.  The choice of developer and viagra canada pharmacy beginning construction date haven't been finalized, but certain details have been confirmed.  The developer will pay for the cost of construction and will rent the system from the Milan Trade Fair, allowing them to market and sale the electricity produced.  After 20 years, the Milan Trade Fair will take over control of buying viagra from india the plant.  It's not certain how much of the generated electricy will go to powering the Trade Fair.

Bidding for the project started yesterday and seven contractors have already submitted bids.  The winner will be announced in September.

Is this a picture of what was been completed so far, or it a computer generated rendering of what the facility will look like when it is cialis for order done? Either way its very cool.

I am very interested in solar energy because it clean, unexhaustable (at least for another 4 billion years, when the sun is expected to burn out), and we can decrease our dependence on foreign oil.

I recently wrote a story about the U.S. Department of the Interior surveying the West for suitable public lands to build utility-scale solar energy facilities.

The story is at

So we are definately on our way in terms of harnessing solar power and becoming more independent. It would be something if one day technology reached the point where we all had roofs made of solar panels.

We already have PV roofing material. I agree with you Kyriaki and this sounds great and "one day" we will make significant use of the sun. Question is will we still be alive by the time that happens? If market forces dictate how quickly R&D and mass production and purchasing cialis changing old habits moves in an economy that is controlled by fossil fuel special interests it will take several generations for solar technology to become the predominant energy source.

The design is very interesting

This undulating structure (and the trade fair complex) was designed by Massimiliano Fuksas and completed in 2005. The pictured structure mainly covers the walkway that traverses the enormous field of rectangular box/warehouse exhibit halls.

I assume that most of the solar panels will be positioned on the roofs of the halls, NOT the rhomboidal canopy (as pictured). That would pretty much destroy the intent of that part of the structure. Check out the following site for more details on the complex itself: Trade Fair

This solar array is beautiful! Everyone always complains that alternative energy sources such as wind and solar are very unattractive, but this one is very aesthetically pleasing. It really sets a precedent!

Om another note, America's largest solar panel array is much less powerful than many in Europe. What do u say we pick it up, USA!?!
