A huge floating solar farm has been built off the coast of Singapore.

A massive 13,000 solar panels have been laid out at sea, with the ability to produce up to five megawatts of electricity.

That’s enough energy to power around 1,400 residential houses all year round.

It is hoped the farm will help tackle the city-state’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The country’s government last month announced a new ‘green plan’ designed to help the environment.

Singapore is a city-state built upon an island in southeast Asia. It relies heavily on natural gas, a non-renewable energy, to provide its power.

The tiny country does not have rivers or strong enough wind for hydro electric or wind generated power so solar energy is the best renewable option.
