- State-owned power generation company China Huadian Corporation has started construction on a 3.3GW solar power plant in Changdu City, in Sichuan province in the southwest of the country.
- This follows the previous record set in China with the 2,2 GW solar PV plant commissioned in September 2020 by Huanghe Hydropower Developments in San Tala, Gonghe County, Qinghai Province, China.
The US$ 2.51 billion project comprises the Mangkang Angdo and Gongju Lator solar plants. The power company said the site will be integrated with agriculture and pastoral cultivation.
The project is one of nine clean energy projects listed in China’s 14th five-year plan. Those renewables projects will have a combined generation capacity of 300GW and will cost around US$47 billion, according to the National Energy Administration.
