Great news, its about dam time! China has a huge dessert they should spend their money on laying miles of solar panels and wind power. Coal needs to be stopped in China.
In Hebei Province, the Zhangbei Shanjinghe 200-million-kilowatt class national concession wind power project recently got underway. This is the first million-kilowatt class wind power base project in China. Some 78.5% of the equipment for the project is made locally. The project will provide green, clean energy to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
A total of 1.6 billion yuan has been invested in the project. The windmill can generate 440 million kilowatts per hour.
