The project, located in the coal mining subsidence areas in Lingwu and Yanchi, has a planned installed capacity of 4GW and also consists of energy storage facilities. It will provide electricity to Zhejiang Province via the Lingwu-Shaoxing DC transmission line. When completed, the project is estimated to transmit 6.4 billion kWh of green electricity to Zhejiang, save 2.3 million tons of standard coal, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 5.28 million tons each year, thus creating massive economic, environmental and social benefits.
