2017 Q1 wind power installations and production by province
From January to March, total newly installed grid-connected capacity was 3.52 GW. By the end of March, the cumulative installed grid-connected capacity reached 151 GW, an increase of 13% year-on-year；From January to March, total wind power generation was 68.7 TWh, an increase of 26% year-on-year；average productivity was 468 full-load hours, an increase of 46 hours on the same period last year；wind power curtailment was 13.5 TWh, 5.7 TWh less than over the same period last year: a significant improvement。
From January to March, the provinces with relatively large increases in installed capacity were Qinghai (590 MW), Shaanxi (410 MW), Henan (320 MW) and Hebei (300 MW)。Provinces with relatively high average wind power productivity were Sichuan (962 full-load hours), Yunnan (939 hours), Fujian (817 hours) and Guangxi (682 hours)；Provinces with relatively low average wind power productivity were Jilin (278 full-load hours), Gansu (305 hours), Heilongjiang (307 hours) and Xinjiang (317 hours)。
