BEIJING, Dec. 30 (Xinhua) -- China has put into full operation a major power transmission project that sends electricity from the resource-rich west to energy-consuming regions in the east.
The construction of the Baihetan-Zhejiang 800-kilovolt ultra-high-voltage direct current power transmission project was completed and started operation on Friday, according to the State Grid Corporation of China.
