The purpose of the Huaneng Changyi Phase II Wind Farm Project is the generation of electricity from wind and the supply of this electricity to the North China Power Grid (NCPG, or the Grid). The Project Activity has installed and is operating 33 wind turbines with a capacity of 1500 kW each. Therefore, the project scenario is the installation of 49.5 MW of renewable energy power generation capacity, and the net supply to the Grid of 106,523 MWh per year of electricity generated from renewable energy once fully operational.
As the Grid is dominated by fossil fuel-fired power generation, and so the establishment of the Project Activity is leading to greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions, with an average 91,886 tonnes of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e) per year offset.
