Liaoning province in northeast China was the location of a significant onshore wind power project that went online on Saturday after it was successfully connected to the state grid. The wind energy project with a capacity of 400,000 kilowatts has the potential to generate 1.13 billion kilowatt-hours of clean power each year. This amount of electricity is sufficient to satisfy the yearly energy requirements of roughly 600,000 homes. According to the Northeast Branch of the State Energy Investment Corporation, which is the investor and constructor of the project, it may also help save 345,000 tons of standard coal and reduce emissions of 912,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year.
The project has a total investment of about 2.2 billion yuan, which is equivalent to approximately 316 million dollars in the United States. It consists of 80 wind turbines, each of which has a capacity of 5 megawatts, and a 220 kilovolt booster station. During the course of the 14th Five-Year Plan, the Liaoning State Energy Investment Corporation was responsible for bringing this significant new energy project to a successful conclusion (2021-2025). By the year 2025, the business intends to boost its installed capacity for renewable energy to 6 million kilowatts by constructing further new energy bases in Liaoning and the bordering region of Inner Mongolia.
