LAHSA, Feb 8 Asia Pulse - The installed capacity of power in Tibet has so far exceeded 358,000 kW, and the annual power output has reached over 700 million kWh.

Key power projects in the region are progressing smoothly. Construction of the middle Tibet power grid and the Lasha-Zetang power transmission line has started; the 110-kV Jinhe-Qamdo transmission line has been completed; and the Ngari Lighting Project has been completed. It is expected that the region has produced over 500 million kWh of electricity and sold nearly 400 million kWh in 2001, all up 9 per cent year-on-year.
