An enormous 1 MW modular solar + diesel hybrid power plant was constructed in Combabula, Queensland (Australia) in only 7 days. It is a great demonstration of just how quickly modular solar power plants can be set up. You can see a time-lapse video of the plant’s prompt construction below.

A key benefit of hybrid solar + diesel power plants is their ability to back each other up in the event of cloudy weather, or a diesel generator breakdown.
