China plans mega transmission power line

The State Grid Corp. of China has started construction on what it says will be the world’s largest capacity power transmission line, according to a story from UPI, in a move that should open China up for more renewable energy use.

“The $3.7 billion, 800-kilovolt power line will be capable of transmitting 37 billion kilowatts on average annually, state-run news agency Xinhua reports. At 1,373 miles long, it will connect the energy base of the Hami prefecture in eastern Xinjiang with the central city of Zhengzhou, going through the expansive region of Xinjiang, Gansu, Ningxia, Shaanxi, Shanxi and Henan.”
