Most solar farms align their solar arrays in rows and columns to form a grid.

A new solar power plant in Datong, China decided to have a little fun with its design.

China Merchants New Energy Group, one of the country’s largest clean energy operators, built a 248-acre solar farm in the shape of a giant panda.

The project just began delivering power to a grid in northwestern China, and a second panda is planned for later this year.

Called the Panda Power Plant, it will be able to produce 3.2 billion kilowatt-hours of solar energy in 25 years, according to the company.

China Merchants New Energy Group worked with the United Nations Development Program to make the Panda Power Plant a reality.

The groups hope to build more panda-shaped solar plants throughout China in the next five years.
