Active power generation capacity at wind farms in northwestern China's Gansu province hit a new high of 6.09 GW at 6:17 a.m. (GMT+8) May 5, sources reported.
That accounted for 38.8% of the province's total on-grid power generation capacity and 59.95% of the grid's power load, according to China Electric Power News.
By the end of last year, installed wind and photoelectric power capacity amounted to 19.6 GW, accounting for 41% of the province's total capacity, which surpassed the share of thermal power capacity.
Owing to a lack of indigenous demand and difficulties in outbound transmission, Gansu has been idling lots of its wind and photoelectric power capacity.
The Jiuquan wind base has more than 10 GW of power capacity.
Gansu saw its power transmission capacity improving, thanks to the commissioning of a ±800 KV ultra-high voltage project in Jiuquan, which has transmitted over 31 GWh clean power to Hunan province in central China.
