If all goes well, the country will end 2011 with a total of 58 GWs of installed capacity, moving ahead with plans to install as much as 150-230 GWs over the next decade. China already has the world's largest installed wind capacity. The new capacity will be state built and financed, like much else in China. According to observers, five national power companies - China Power Investment Group, Guodian, Datant, Huanent and Huadian will build the largest wind farms. So far, the largest of them is Datant's 400 MW farm in the Jiling province. Overall, the country will invest 5000 RMB per kW (US $764) or about US $764,000 per MW of wind turbine capacity. Ma...
