Henan Province in central China will give equal emphasis to the upgrading of existing power plants and the building of power grids over the next 5 years.
The province will build 6 new power plants with an aggregate generating capacity of 4300 MW over the coming years.

Feasibility reports on the construction of the new plants have won state approval, according to information from the Provincial Development Planning Commission.

It will take 5 years to complete power-grid upgrading in the province's urban areas, and 3 years to complete power-grid construction and upgrading in the rural areas.
An official with the commission said they warmly welcome overseas investors' participation in the province's power development plan, while at the same time they strive for more funding from the state.

By 1997, Henan had a combined generating capacity of 11720 MW. The total generating capacity of the province is expected to rise to 13000 MW by the end of this year, 15000 MW by 2000, and 17000 MWby 2002.
The province is now constructing 6 power plants, and by the end of this year 2000 MW will be added to its total generating capacity.
