China is the Largest solar market in Asia,
And it plans to add more production projects in areas where electricity can be distributed to customers who live nearby.

China Solar SystemNext year, China will add 6 gigawatts of distributed solar power, or power plants that are scattered rather than a central hub, Wu said. More than 80 percent of this capacity will be in the regions around Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing. These areas have electricity demand higher than other cities, Wang Min Nan, a Beijing-based Bloomberg New Energy Finance analyst, said today by phone. "It is not necessary to transmit energy over long distances," she said. China aims to reach 35 gigawatts of total solar capacity in 2015, according to Wu's speech posted yesterday. The country introduced a subsidy of 0.42 yuan (7 cents) one kilowatt hour in August for projects under 6 megawatts connected networks up to 10 kV. China Development Bank Corp. will establish funding agencies and local investment to advance the planned plants...
