According to the Three Gorges Group, the Jinsha River Wudongde Hydroelectric Power Plant, the seventh largest hydroelectric power plant in the world and the fourth largest in China, has generated over 100 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in the three years since it started operation until June 25 this year. This is equivalent to approximately 90% of Guangzhou’s total social electricity consumption (11.876 billion kWh) in 2022, saving approximately 30.15 million tons of standard coal consumption and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 82.8 million tons. The power plant is located in the Jinsha River Gorge section on the border between Lukangyi Miao Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province and Huidong County in Sichuan Province, and is an important project in the “West Power East Transmission” project to transmit electricity generated in the western region to the eastern region. The power plant has 12 hydroelectric generators with a single installed capacity of 850,000 kilowatts (kW), for a total installed generating capacity of 10.2 million kW and a planned multi-year average generation of 38.91 billion kWh.
