Jan. 4, 2018 -- Yumai, a remote village with 32 people in southwest Tibet’s Shannan city, has gotten access to sustainable electricity supply from State Grid, ending the village’s predicament of power shortage.
For a long time, the border village had to suffer electricity shortage due to its remote location. In 2008, the local government built a small hydropower station. However, with the increasing demand for electricity, the power supply was far from enough.
To solve the problem, a power grid project was initiated in Aug. 2017. During the nearly five months, workers had to make headway against harsh natural environments, said Bai Feng, chief engineer of the project.
