In the first six months of this year, China added 3.3 gigawatts of solar power capacity, which is more capacity than Australia has, Bloomberg News reported. The addition, twice as much as  in the first half of last year, brings China’s total solar capacity to 23 gigawatts.

The news comes after China announced it had added 13 gigawatts of hydropower this year and plans to cut coal generation in Beijing to reduce air pollution.

The country’s energy administration hopes to install a total of 13 gigawatts of solar power this year, much of it in the form of distributed solar on consumers’ rooftops, Bloomberg reported.

    Strange that the price of silver, a main component of solar power, remains static and even goes down a bit on the news…normally, you would think the opposite would be true.

    The subsequent time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to read, but I really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you may fix should you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
