The National Energy Administration requires the solar projects to be funded by a single development team with the use of a “self-generate/consume” model. They also required that the demand of the subsidies should not exceed RMB 0.45/kWh.

“Last September the Chinese government unveiled plans to stimulate local PV demand with a programme to promote distributed solar generation. The measures were brought in to address overcapacity in China’s PV manufacturing industry and trade tensions with Europe and the US,” PV-Tech notes.
