"Last year, franchised bidding method was introduced in PV power projects. Many companies started to build 10 MW or 20 MW Photovoltaic Power Stations as experimental projects. After the power price is fixed, all companies started building 100 MW projects. As energy developers, we feel rest assured when the power price is fixed."

A 200-MW Photovoltaic Power Station, believed to be the largest of its kind in the world, went on stream Saturday in Golmud, Qinghai Province, NW China.
Built on a desert 30 km from Golmud, the power station extends 6 km, covering 6 square km. The power station may save 120,000 tons of standard coal every year as compared with the thermal power station of similar size.
The power station came into being under the state encouragement policies. According to the benchmark price of PV power fixed by the state, each kwh is priced at 1.15 yuan, which may well serve as a great incentive to accelerating the building of PV power stations.
"Last year, franchised bidding method was introduced in PV power projects. Many companies started to build 10 MW or 20 MW Photovoltaic Power Stations as experimental projects. After the power price is fixed, all companies started building 100 MW projects. As energy developers, we feel rest assured when the power price is fixed," said Shen Youguo, responsible for PV power station projects of Qinghai Huanghe Hydropower Development Co., Ltd.
The upstream enterprises of PV power projects have also got a shot in the arm. The flagship Yingli Group has received 200 MW orders, which are about the total for the past several years.
"Now we are working in full capacity and round the clock. We have benefited from the large number of PV power projects started by the state since the beginning of this year. Over the past three months, we have received more than 200 MW orders and such orders are still streaming in," said Zheng Xiaoqiang, deputy general manager of Yingli Group.
Zheng said that our enterprises have always set their eyes on Europe. But the situation has been getting cold this year. Due to the European debt crisis, all countries have cut government subsidies to PV products. But, at a time with the PV upstream enterprises were worrying about export, the central government opened up a window, offering great incentives to developing PC power. With the technological progress, PV power will become a power source affordable by the common people.
