Unified large market of power grid!

Twenty two years ago this summer, on the banks of the Qinhuangdao River, comrades from Guangdong brought a major topic, asking the central authorities to approve the construction of 10 million kilowatt units for Guangdong, which is developing rapidly in economy, during the 10th Five Year Plan period.

President Zhu raised objections to this.

He has just returned from an investigation in the southwest at the beginning of the year. He suggested that new hydropower plants be built in Guizhou and Yunnan to send power to Guangdong, which not only solved the growing power demand of Guangdong, but also found a sustainable economic growth point for the backward central and western regions.

Since the founding of new China, all provinces have built their own power plants and power grids. The power plants in their own provinces can bring a lot of investment, employment and tax revenue, thus forming their own “hilltops”. At that time, the power of China’s largest hydropower station “Ertan” could not be transported out of the four rivers, and could only be consumed in vain.

President Zhu’s proposal is not only to let the developed areas in the east buy the power in the west, but also to break these mountains and interest groups to form a unified power market in the country. Therefore, the proposal met with fierce opposition on the spot, and everyone proposed that it is not feasible to transmit power across provinces from the technical and economic perspectives.

In the face of the rising tide of opposition, general manager Zhu, who was concerned about the masses in difficulty, rose to the table and issued a military order in public. If he could not complete the task of transmitting 10 million kilowatts to Guangdong, he would resign.

But even so, it was not able to hold the scene for a while until an elder with black frame glasses made a decision. “Zhu always studied electrical engineering at Tsinghua University. He knows electricity. Let’s listen to him.”

The two partners from Shanghai joined hands to open the great curtain of the reform of the west to East power transmission.

In order to transmit power from the west to the East, the divided power grids are connected along the transmission direction, and the power mountain of each province begins to collapse. Finally, the scattered power grids in the country are reorganized into two networks.

Considering that Guangdong was a local power grid at that time, the province invested a lot of money, and in order to make it happy to pay for the hydropower in Yunnan and Guizhou, the central government and the local government took a step back and implemented a dual track system. Besides the State Grid, Guangdong power grid reorganized the power grids of Yunnan, Guizhou and Guangxi provinces to form the southern power grid.

This plan perfectly solved the mountain obstacle of the west to East power transmission, but it also left behind problems left over by history. The power grids of Fujian and Guangdong, which are closely related to each other, are actually separated. The power grids of Yunnan, Guizhou and Sichuan and Chongqing, which use the same language paper for the college entrance examination, are also disconnected.

The only connecting line between the two networks was a three million kilowatt “spare tire” pulled from the Three Gorges to Guangdong in order to prevent the power of Yunnan and Guizhou from being transported to Guangzhou in time.

Today, 22 years after the launch of the west to East power transmission plan, the high temperature and power shortage in Sichuan and Chongqing have affected the hearts of countless Chinese compatriots.


All localities are calling for saving electricity to support Sichuan and Chongqing, where production has stopped completely. Even the State Grid has mobilized power support from Liaoning and eastern Mongolia, which are thousands of kilometers away.

These days, some media are playing the sad card, using several documents to play up the fact that Sichuan and Chongqing would rather cut off the production power than transmit power to Shanghai, packaging Shanghai as a black hearted capitalist, believing that the power supply of Sichuan and Chongqing should be given priority, and the developed areas in the East should bear the consequences of power shortage.

From the perspective of writing shuangwen, this is really cool, but from the perspective of the poor people in the west, their opponents, the vested interest groups in the East, are eager to have a big power outage to promote the power self-sufficiency policy in the east coast, so as to build an independent kingdom of power self-sufficiency in their own land.

Anyway, Australian coal is not expensive to Shanghai and Guangzhou.

And great politicians will not allow this to happen. They are all trying to clear the mountain and promote the domestic unified market.

Just like Merkel, in order to establish a unified Europe, she closed the thermal power plants and nuclear power plants in Germany while laying the energy pipelines between Russia and Europe and using natural gas to generate electricity, tying Russia to the armored chariot developed by Germany.

The west to East Gas Transmission and west to East power transmission promoted by China are also forcing the developed east to buy the energy of the west, making the West rich, allowing the East’s manufactured products to be dumped and gaining room for the development of the industrial chain.

Once the energy is decoupled, like Russia and the European Union today, it will only be gradually separated in the future. If our western region cannot obtain the transfer payment from the eastern region through energy transmission, and choke the lifeline of the eastern region, the domestic economic internal circulation will also face the risk of collapse.

Therefore, we can not be misled by public opinion. To solve the power shortage in this round, we can not rely on going to Pudong to “fight against the local tyrants”, but on establishing a unified national power market.

What we should really pay attention to in this round is why Yunnan and Guizhou, which are adjacent to Sichuan and Chongqing, are unable to deliver rich hydropower to the next door. The only thing that the huge China Southern Power Grid can help is the 3 million kilowatt “spare tire” that was originally used to transmit power from the west to the East, which reversely supplies power to Chongqing like a drop in a bucket.

This round of power crisis in Chengdu and Chongqing has sounded an alarm bell for us. The interconnection of the two power networks across the country should be accelerated to become an important weapon for China to kill the four sides in the future.

In recent years, the developed countries in the world have been devoting all their efforts to develop clean energy. However, the sudden change of climate in recent years has caused a huge shock to the development of clean energy. The cold ice and snow have made Texas, which is floating on the oil, become an old dog. The hot and dry weather has made Germany, which is lying on the coal mountain, almost hang on to the southeast branch.

Whether it is the European Union or the United States, the “feudal thinking” and “federal thinking” formed since the establishment of civilization, as well as the offshore balance made by the scumbags, make it difficult for them to establish a unified large market for clean energy, and a large amount of clean energy will be wasted, thus losing the price advantage.

The United States, in particular, is in a perfect position in the era of sea power, but it is unable to transmit and transfer domestic power to Eurasia.

In the future, China will establish a strong power network through UHV, so as to extend to Central Asia and Southeast Asia, integrate power resources such as wind, water, nuclear, gas and coal, and exchange primary manufactured products of these countries through stable and cheap power dumping, thus forming a supply chain system around China.

Even different clean power generated by different natural resources in these countries can be incorporated into China’s power grid for peak shaving and valley filling, so as to provide people with a comfortable life without fear of power failure.

In the industrial era, the great powers gained control of China through railway networks. In the digital era, China’s powerful power network will link the destinies of Asian countries.
