May 25, 2016 -- Located on the middle and lower reaches of the Yarlung Valley in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, formed by the Yarlung Tsangpo River, Shannan City is often regarded as the birthplace of Tibetan civilization. Shannan has one district and 11 counties and its capital is Tsetang, which is located 183 kilometers from Lhasa. It covers an area of 79,700 square kilometers, which includes South Tibet.
At present, with an investment of 1.68 billion yuan RMB (about 256.2 million US dollars), a total of 7 photovoltaic power stations have been built in Shannan. In 2015, the total energy output was 139 million kilowatt-hours. The construction of photovoltaic power station has not only relieved the electric tension at villages and towns but also increased local people's income.
