Eco Green Living - China's Beijing closes coal plants to lower pollution

Less electricity demand due to the global financial crisis has given China the ability to close small coal-fired power plants. 60 percent of China's Energy comes from Coal.

"This couldn't be done when power demand was very intense," Sun said at a news conference. "Due to this financial crisis, the power generation has slowed down, so we took this opportunity to accelerate the shutdown."

China Finance Ministry last week announced to pay up to 70 percent of the cost of new solar systems and are trying to reduce demand for imported oil and gas by shutting down smaller, inefficient power plants and to change to more of an Eco friendly energy like wind, solar and other clean sources. This will lower sulfur dioxide emission by an approx. 1.1 million tons and carbon dioxide output by 124 million tons per year.
