China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

To­tal elec­tric­ity out­put of the world’s largest hy­dropower project—the Three Gorges Project — has ex­ceeded 200 bil­lion kilo­watt hours (kWh) this year, the China Three Gorges Cor­po­ra­tion (STGC) an­nounced.

The out­put is a his­tor­i­cal high and more than twice the elec­tric­ity de­mand of Beijing, the company said in a press re­lease. Beijing city’s elec­tric­ity con­sump­tion in 2013 stood at 91.3 bil­lion kWh.

It also said that 200 bil­lion kWh is the equiv­a­lent of sav­ing 100 mil­lion tons of coal and pre­vent­ing the emis­sions of car­bon diox­ide and sul­fur diox­ide by 200 mil­lion tons and 2 mil­lion tons, re­spec­tively. (Photo 1)
