This notice clarified the guaranteed grid-connected scale in 2021 should not be less than 90 million kilowatts, and the total household photovoltaic subsidies were also clearly set at 500 million yuan. In order to achieve the construction target, NEA has established a long-term mechanism:
- to guide the consumption weight, with the state no longer assigning annual construction scale and indicators for each province, but rather a goal orientation;
- to create a diversified grid-connection guarantee scheme, where projects will be be divided into: guaranteed grid-connected projects and market-oriented grid-connected projects;
to unfiy guaranteed grid-connection, with all provincial-level energy authorities organising together connected projects through competitive allocation.
