We don’t often cover green tech here on the ‘razz, so when we do, you can consider it big news.

Florida-based National Solar Power announced earlier this week that it is considering seven communities in the Southeast U.S. to host what will eventually become the world’s largest solar plant. The enormous 400MW project would include 20 related 200-acre solar farms, with each generating more than 20-megawatts of renewable energy. Each panel would be raised seven feet off the ground and be surrounded by native vegetation to make them blend with their surroundings.

The project, which would eventually produce enough energy to power 32,000 homes, would create 400 jobs during the five-year construction and 120 permanent. Each 200-acre farm represents a $70M investment.

Communities under consideration for the farms are located in Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina. More details here.
