There were still 5.74 GW of household photovoltaic projects that can receive Chinese government subsidies as of the end of May, based on data released by the National Energy Administration (NEA) on projects already received subsidies.
Household photovoltaic projects with installed capacity of 1.26 GW distributed in 30 provinces across China were on the list of subsidy receivers as of the end of May, according to a statement released by the NEA on June 15.
In May, installed capacity of household photovoltaic projects newly included in the national financial subsidies reached 596.4 MW, rising approximately 48.0% from a year ago, the statement said.
Shandong ranked first with newly-added photovoltaic scale at 254.4 MW, accounting for 42.7% of the total, followed by Hebei (129.1 MW) and Henan (81.4 MW).
In January-May, Shandong, Hebei and Henan also ranked the top three in the cumulative household photovoltaic scale within subsidy.
According to a notice issued by the NEA in March, total subsidy budget for newly-built household photovoltaic projects would be 500 million yuan ($70.6 million) in 2020, equaling to 7 GW of solar power connected with grid.
