What better way is there to express love for the Earth than to install a solar power plant in the shape of a heart?

This is what the ‘Heart of New Caledonia’ plant will look like when it’s completed on the French island in the South Pacific.

As The Guardian shares, a local beverage company in the region contracted Conergy Australia to build it. Unique in design, the solar power plant was inspired by the nearby landmark, “Coeur de Voh”, or “heart of Voh” – a naturally heart-shaped mangrove forest.

Eye-catching and artistic, the heart-shaped installation is made up of 7,888 panels across the four-acre site on Grand Terre, New Caledonia’s largest island. Keep in mind, its design will only be visible from the air.

When the ‘Heart of New Caledonia’ plant is finished, it will generate enough electricity for 750 homes and reduce carbon emissions by two million tons over its 25-year life expectancy.
