Tangshan Photovoltaic Project is located in Binhai Town, Caofeidian District, Tangshan City, Hebei Province. The project started on January 11, 2016 and was connected to the grid on December 28, 2016.
The solar farm of Tangshan Power Station covers an area of 712 mu (around 47 hectares), with a total installed capacity of 17.29 MW. In order to improve the land utilization rate, the project planted medicinal peony, rhizoma anemarrhenae and other Chinese herbal medicines between photovoltaic modules based on local conditions, pioneering the operation mode of integrating PV with Chinese herbal medicine planting. It shows not only China’s advanced technology in renewable energy development and utilization, but also the strength of energy conservation and environmental protection.
The whole life cycle of this project is 25 years, and it can save 8226.39 tons of standard coal for China every year, of which about 725.86 tons of sulfur dioxide emissions and 21,300 tons of greenhouse gas carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced. The project gives full play to the advantages of solar resources in Tangshan, optimizes local energy structure, reduces the pressure of environmental protection, contributes to the sustainable development of photovoltaic power generation industry in Hebei Province, and provides reliable clean energy for Caofeidian Photovoltaic Planning Demonstration Zone in Tangshan.
