Located in the plateau area of the Ya Lung River basin in Sichuan province and with a capacity of 1 GW from solar panels and 3 GW of hydroelectric power units, the Kela plant annually can produce 2 billion kWh, which is equivalent to the energy consumption of more than 700,000 households in a year.


The Kela photovoltaic plant has an installed capacity of 1 million kW, while the Lianghekou hydroelectric complex has an installed capacity of 3 million kW. Taken together, this is the world’s largest cluster of solar and hydroelectric power plants in terms of installed capacity.

Kela power plant covers an area of ​​about 16 million square meters, equivalent to 2,000 standard football fields. The structure was built at more than 4,000 meters above sea level, making it one of the tallest power plants of its kind in the world.

The electricity generated by the solar panels will be connected to the Lianghekou hydroelectric plant, which is then integrated into the grid. The project will be estimated to generate 2 billion kWh of clean electricity per year, equivalent to more than 600,000 tons of standard coal, helping to reduce more than 1.6 million tons of CO2 emissions.

In addition to achieving carbon neutrality goals and optimizing the national energy structure, the project also promotes the development of sectors such as agriculture, livestock, tourism, and transportation of neighboring ethnic minority areas.
