Forget Texas--everything's bigger in China, from the Great Wall to the Three Gorges Dam and now the largest solar power plant in the world.

There isn't a timeframe for the solar power plant's completion, but construction will begin in 2009. The project will begin in the Qaidam Basin with a 30 megawatt solar power plant; at its completion the plant will produce 1 gigawatt of clean power.

The massive solar power plant is a joint venture between China Technology Development Group Corp and Qinghai New Energy Group.
