BEIJING, China, Oct. 16, 2019 /PVTIME/ -- According to the <National Energy Administration Policy Briefing on Matters Related to Wind and Photovoltaic Power Generating Projects in 2019>’s (NEA 2019 Policy Briefing No.49, hereafter referred to as “the briefing”) and <National Energy Administration Policy Briefing on Matters Related to the Publication and Submission of Household Photovoltaic Project Information in 2019>’s (NEA 2019 Policy Briefing No.45) project management requirements, 30 provinces in China have submitted information on household photovoltaic projects (Tibet is excluded from subsidies due to not submitting the required information).
National Renewable Energy Information Management Center’s analysis of the information submitted by the provincial energy authorities and power grid enterprises determined that the installed capacity of subsided household PV projects increased by 920.3MW in September of 2019. See attached table for details.
By the end of September, the accumulated total of installed capacity of subsided household PV projects has exceeded the planned annual subsidized projects total of 3.5GW. According to the briefing, “when the accumulated installed capacity of grid connected projects for the year (up to the end of the last month) exceeds the annual planned installed capacity total for that year, the last day of that month becomes the deadline for household photovoltaic to connect to the grid and receive state subsidies.” In order to maintain balanced and healthy development of the industry, October 31, 2019 will be the deadline for household PV projects to connect to the grid and receive state subsidies for the year.
