Subsidies for feed-in power of 5 projects cancelled: Photovoltaic power station investor and operator Taiji Industry announced that it is adhering to the notice about repealing the on-grid electricity price put up by the Development and Reform Commission of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The notice said that the subsidized contracted on-grid electricity price for several projects have to be abolished. An audit showed that these projects had changed investment entities without authorization. With this, 5 centralized photovoltaic power plants – Balagon 10 MW, Xilinhot Shengli 20 MW, Chayouhouqi 30 MW in the second phase, Zhuozi 20 MW, and Bayin 35 MW in second phase – will no longer enjoy electricity subsidy.
