In October, a large loan was obtained from China Development Bank, and the company had already secured 111 of the 132 wind turbines for the project. The project was begun in the Fall of 2011 in the Heilongjiang Province. The four wind farms are managed by Huadian Power International Co., but two are associated with Hebi Huadian Yuzhou Wind Power Co. and two with Ningxia Ningdong.

Currently, only about one percent of China’s energy is generated by wind power, but that figure could easily increase to 17 percent. One estimate indicated China could have 1,000 GW of wind power by 2050.

China is the world’s largest wind market, but there’s indication that it may slow down until 2015.
