Speeding up Power Supply in Areas without Access to Electricity

SGCC reserved no effort in 2009 to carry out the central government's policy of speeding up rural development. It took improving power grid in rural areas and electric power construction in areas without access to electricity as its top priorities. The company therefore actively pushed forward the project of "Power for All" in Tibet, and strived to meet emerging power demands in Xinjiang, Gansu, Sichuan, Qinghai and other regions.

A total of RMB 2.01 billion yuan was invested last year to help 141,000 households or 591,000 people access to power, among which 21,739 households are in Tibet. And with one newly added county, altogether 16 counties has accomplished "Power for All", paving the way for social and economic development in non-electrified regions and the cause of building new countryside in Tibet.

Since 2006 when the project of "Power for All" commenced, SGCC has so far made electricity available to 1.262 million households or 4.756 million people. The total investment reached RMB 14.83 billion yuan. Lengths of new and upgraded 110 kV, 35 kV, 10 kV and LV lines were 1,240 km, 5,169 km, 57,000 km and 135,000 km respectively. In addition, numbers of new and upgraded 110 kV and 35 kV substations are 44 and 257 respectively, and new and replaced transformers numbered 37,000.

In 2010, SGCC will continue its efforts to improve electricity accessibility in Xinjiang, Heilongjiang and Eastern Inner Mongolia, and promote the project of "Power for All" in Tibet, trying to make electricity available to 28,300 more households or 130,000 more people by the end of August, so as to fulfill "Power for All", improve life and working conditions in the area, and secure electric power supply for local economic and social development.
