URUMQI -- Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region has generated 260 billion kWh of clean electricity since 2010, according to the State Grid's Xinjiang branch.

Out of the total electricity generated through green energy sources such as wind and solar power, over 180 billion kWh were consumed locally and about 80 billion kWh were transmitted outside the region.

The clean electricity helped reduce 83.2 million tons of coal use and cut emissions by 225 million tons of carbon dioxide and 700,000 tons of sulfur dioxide, according to Guo Xiaolong with the State Grid Xinjiang Electric Power Co Ltd.

To date, Xinjiang's installed capacity of green energy production has exceeded 30 million KW, and the clean electricity has been transmitted to 19 municipalities, provinces and regions through four channels.
