January 21, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Eastern Fujian province in China plans to invest 1.55 billion yuan (US$190 million) in a wind power generation project, according to Senior managers with the Fujian Provincial Power Company, the province’s dominant power firm. An initial feasibility study and proposals have been completed for the project. With the Taiwan Straits off its 3,051 km coastline, the province boasts abundant wind power. The province, largely dependent on imported coal and troubled by acid rain as a result, has mapped out a plan to tap Renewable Energy, including wind power, during the coming decade. The plan calls for wind-generated power plants with a combined designed generating capacity of 200,000 kW to be built during the five-year period from 2001 to 2005.
