The Solar Power Plant is a utility building that produces Power for your Sims.
Power Plants plants are designed to be connected to zones and buildings with Power Lines, but do not have to be as they provide power to other buildings within a three-tile radius and those buildings may relay that power to other buildings in another three-tile radius and so on.
The Solar Power Plant is the most expensive power solution in SimCity 4, only becoming cheaper than the Wind Power Plant after six in-game years at full funding. However, the Wind Power Plant is cleaner as it produces no pollution and does not need to be unlocked.
It is positioned between the Natural Gas Power Plant and Coal Power Plant in individual power production, producing less pollution than either plant but costing twice as much over time.
The News Ticker fluff entry created on its placement is "City Pride Shines Brightly On New Solar Power Plant".
