Northwestern China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region has transferred 10.14 TWh of electricity to other regions since the start of this year, a year-on-year surge of 32%, said State Grid's Xinjiang office on February 20.
The increase is attributed to the launch of a key power transfer project that extends over 3,000 km from Xinjiang to eastern China's Anhui province, according to the company.
The region also signed electricity transfer deals with an increasing number of provincial-level administrations, furthering fueling the surge, it said.
In 2019, the region transferred over 71.2 TWh of electricity to other regions, 1.4 times that of the previous year.
