On June 28, 2016, the first batch 380MWp photovoltaic project in Phase I of the Ningxia (Yanchi) New Energy Comprehensive Demonstration Zone of CMIG New Energy, a subsidiary of CMIG, successfully started grid-connected power generation, This also lay down solid foundation for the construction of this world’s biggest single-unit photovoltaic power station with 2GW total planned capacity. Previously, CMIG New Energy’s 200MWp project located in Tongxin County, Ningxia, accomplished grid-connected power generation.
Located at Gaoshawo Town, Yanchi County, Ningxia, the Ningxia (Yanchi) New Energy Comprehensive Demonstration Zone has a total planned capacity of 2GW, it is a photovoltaic industrial park zone for the “Thirteenth Five Year” Plan of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, and the only photovoltaic industry demonstration zone named after an enterprise.

While creating economic benefit, CMIG New Energy Ningxia (Yanchi) New Energy Comprehensive Demonstration Zone extends economic benefit to social and people’s livelihood field, so that its social significance becomes more far-reaching. Since the project’s construction, CMIG New Energy carried out “Photovoltaic + Rooftop Poverty-alleviation”, “Photovoltaic + Village-grade Poverty-alleviation Power Station” Integrated Supporting Poverty-alleviation Project in Ningxia, intending to spend one to three years to help Yanchi County fulfill total poverty-alleviation, which received acknowledgement from a number of media including CCTV, the People’s Daily, and Xinhua News Agency.
Up till now, CMIG New Energy Investment Co., Ltd has invested a total of nearly 20 projects in 8 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions including Ningxia, Henan, and Shandong, large-scale, specialized and intensive development attracted much attention from both the industrial circle and the capital circle.
