Estimated amount of emission reductions over the crediting period including project size:
Over the crediting period of 7 years, the project would generate 799,484 tCO2e.
By replacing the electricity generated from fossil fuel-fired power plants dominated Northeast China Power Grid; the proposed project activity will achieve obvious greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions by avoiding CO2 emissions.
The proposed project is located in Changling County, Songyuan City, Jilin Province, P. R. China.
Pollutants emission reduction through replacing fossil fuel combustion:
The proposed project is to replace grid-connected fossil fuel-fired power plants in the Northeast China Power Grid, and thus reduce fossil fuel consumption and avoid pollutants emission, such as sulfur dioxide and dust, brought by fossil fuel combustion. Therefore, the proposed project has obvious environmental benefit.
The conducting of the proposed project will offer 20 job opportunities for local people.
The construction of the wind farm will achieve the economic growth in the region. Furthermore, the project contributes to local government with more tax revenues and poverty alleviation.
