Xichang Power Grid invested 1.5 billion yuan to build "two networks in one"
On March 14, Xichang City held a kick-off meeting for power grid planning and construction. With the strong support of the provincial power company, Xichang Electric Power Company and Xichang Electric Power Bureau joined forces to start the planning and construction of Xichang Power Grid with a total investment of nearly 1.5 billion yuan. After the project is completed, the current "two networks" of Xichang Power Grid will be integrated. It has become a "one network" to provide a strong guarantee for the modern ecological pastoral Xichang.
For a long time, due to the old system, the power supply system in Xichang urban area is mainly composed of "two networks" of two units, Xichang Electric Power Company and Xichang Electric Power Bureau. Due to the lag in power grid construction and the contradiction between supply and demand competition between the two power supply companies, Xichang's power supply has been seriously unable to adapt to the rapid development of Xichang's industry, economy and society, and it is urgent to transform the power grid and ensure power supply.
The "two power grids in one" project invested nearly 1.5 billion yuan, of which the provincial power company invested 813 million yuan; Xichang Electric Power Bureau invested 550 million yuan; Xichang Electric Power Company invested 30 million yuan every year since 2012, and by 2015 a total of 120 million yuan Yuan. After the unified Xichang power grid is completed, multiple points will be connected to the national grid to improve the reliability and stability of power supply in Xichang.
