  • [Jiangsu Yuguang Complementary New Energy Project Starts]
  • On February 22, 2024, the groundbreaking ceremony was held for the 940MW fishery photovoltaic complementary power generation project in Ganyu District, Lianyungang City. This project is currently the largest fishery photovoltaic complementary new energy project in Jiangsu Province. The total investment of this project is about 5.43 billion yuan, which is divided into Dongshang 280MW, Dongshang 360MW, and Dongyu 300MW complementary photovoltaic power generation projects. At the same time, two new 220kV booster stations will be built as supporting facilities. The project fully utilizes the water area of fish ponds, combines photovoltaic power generation with fishery aquaculture, and forms a composite industrial model of "water power generation and underwater aquaculture". The economic value of unit land area has significantly increased, creating a "new sample" for the development of clean energy. By the end of September 2024, the project will achieve full capacity grid connected power generation. After completion, the annual total power generation is expected to reach 1.609 billion kWh, saving 496400 tons of coal annually and achieving sales revenue of 629 million yuan. Editor/Zhao E
