Yunnan sends hydropower to Hainan for first time in history

In June, for the first time in history, electricity was transmitted through alternating current submarine cables from Yunnan Province to Hainan Province, enabling power transmission from the mainland to the island. Called "Hainan Networking 500kV II,” it is China’s second 500kV ultra-high voltage, long-distance, large-capacity underwater grid project. Spanning from the 500kV Gangcheng Substation in Zhanjiang to the 500kV Fushan Substation in Chengmai, 172GWh of power was transmitted between the two regions.(Ifeng)
