CMIG combines photovoltaic industry with poverty alleviation and development, opening the new path for combining targeted poverty alleviation, ecological development and clean energy.

CMIG New Energy, one subsidiary of CMIG, has established a national comprehensive demonstration zone of new energy in YanChi, NingXia, a national-level poverty-stricken county, built a photovoltaic power station with an installed capacity of 2GW – the largest photovoltaic power station in Asia till now, and created the model of “PV+” -Targeted Poverty Alleviation, alleviating poverty by giving full play to the scale effect of the premium. Compared with the simple mode of poverty alleviation in the past, this way is more sustainable and reasonable.

Starting from NingXia, CMIG has quickly accomplished photovoltaic industry distribution, implemented the strategy of PV poverty alleviation in accordance with local conditions in poor areas, and helped alleviate poverty based on PV projects. Supported by PV, and taking the endowment of local resources as the starting point, CMIG has managed to strike a balance between enterprise social responsibility and project scale effect.
