China’s National Development and Reform Commission recently set its first feed-in tariffs for solar power and technical standards for wind power as part of its effort to expand the use of renewable energy. For solar PV projects approved before July 1, 2011 and completed by December 31, 2011, the price will be 18 cents per kilowatt-hour, and for all other projects, the price will be 15 cents/kWh. The average rate that grid companies pay to purchase electricity from power companies is about 6 cents/kWh. At the same time, China’s National Energy Administration published 18 new technical standards and monitoring guidelines related to wind power technology, generation, grid connection, and project design.
