Case Highlights
As the largest PV power generation project in Xinjiang, the Tacheng project was constructed by China Huadian Corporation LTD. as part of a large-scale, digital, and multi-energy complementary clean energy base to generate green electricity and carry out PV-assist desertification control. The project is combined with over 1.16 million pieces of ASTRO 5 modules, which is expected to save about 300,000 tons of standard coal annually and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 780,000 tons. With “Solar + Desertification Control” application, the shaded area of PV power generation areas could help to reduce soil moisture evaporation, reduce wind speed, fix shifting sand, create favorable conditions for vegetation growth, and promote the integration and friendly development of new energy and ecology, said the project constructor, getting a double or even triple advantages of green power, better environment and less pollution.
