Southern China's Guangdong province planned to increase market-oriented power trading volume to 150-160 TWh next year, said the provincial economic & information commission in a notice.
Compared with the target of 100 TWh in 2017, the 2018 target increased over 50%, said the commission on September 30, noting it just a preliminary estimate.
Power generators are expected to sign up to 110 TWh of annual bilateral trade contracts with end users.
Nuclear power plants other than Dayawan and some gas-fired plants are also allowed to participate, the notice said. But, those nuclear generators participating in the transfer of monthly power generation quotas can only do so among nuclear units, it pointed out.
The commission also lowered the trading entry threshold -- 25 GWh for industrial and commercial consumers in the Pearl River Delta and 15 GWh for those in other parts of the province.
