Key points of investment: The newly injected Juyuan Power contributed to the increase in main power generation, and the shift in power generation at Longtan Power Station dragged down 18-year performance.

The company achieved 383 hydropower generation in 2018.

700 million kWh, an increase of 10 in ten years.

7%, of which Juyuan Power acquired in the first half of the year achieved 40 generation.

3.3 billion kilowatt-hours, contributing a major increase in power generation.

After excluding the Juyuan power supply and the school power that was put into operation in July 2017, the company’s stock hydropower generating unit’s 2018 power generation swap position 2.


The company’s main source of profit is that the Longtan Power Plant’s power generation in 2018 showed a trend of high levels and low levels in the first half, and the power generation volume increased by 38 in the first half of the year.
