 A massive solar power farm in the Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Northwest China's Qinghai Province has come up with a shared-use plan for the land it occupies; it's also raising more than 4,000 sheep. The solar power farm is reportedly one of the largest in the country and was built on land that was basically classified as a desert. "Due to abundant rainfall and reusing the water used to wash the solar panels for irrigation, grass (near the solar panels) is growing really well," said Huang Xiwei, a company spokesperson told Pear Video.As the sheep feed on the grass they also eliminate potential safety hazards within the zone. During the winter the dead grass could pose a potential fire hazard otherwise, said Huang."The profit earned from selling the sheep can be used to further develop the solar power farm. This is the circle of sustainability," Li Sijia, a geography teacher told the Global Times on Sunday.
