Urumqi, january 10(xinhua)(liu bing)\" electric heating really good, a few minutes after opening the room warm, more convenient and cleaner than burning coal.\" Since the village's coal-to-electricity grid was completed last year, the Aboudou-Abla family has used wall-mounted electric heating, ending a history of burning coal for heating.
In addition to being convenient and clean, electric heating is more affordable for Aboudou Aini Abla. His family is located in the taklamakan desert hinterland of tawakul township of khakshar village, the local coal resources are scarce, transportation is difficult, each heating season, to sell thousands of yuan per ton of coal. \"My family uses two tons of coal every winter, the power company has helped us calculate, with electricity heating, a household a winter about 3800 degrees electricity, the cost of only about 800 yuan.
Deeply impoverished southern xinjiang states (kashgar, hetian, aksu region and kizil sukokiz self-ruled state) long-term winter coal supply is tight, people of all ethnic groups are difficult and expensive to buy coal. In order to solve this problem, Xinjiang started the \"coal power conversion\" project in the four states of southern Xinjiang in March last year.The Xinjiang Electric Power Co. Ltd. invested 4.6 billion yuan in power grid construction and renovation, involving 10,000 households in 224 townships and 1205 villages, and completed the extension and reinforcement project of 750 kV power grid in southern Xinjiang, thus ensuring the smooth implementation of \"coal power conversion \".
According to the Housing and Urban-Rural Development Department of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the \"coal to electricity\" project is implemented in accordance with the standard of 4 kilowatts and 50 square meters per household. The construction cost per household is 3800 yuan, of which the central subsidy is 1425 yuan, the autonomous region subsidy is 1425 yuan, and the residents only have to bear 950 yuan.
It is estimated by Xinjiang Electric Power Co., Ltd. that with the abandonment of coal and electricity heating by ten thousand households in the four states of southern Xinjiang, it saves ten thousand tons of standard coal, ten thousand tons of carbon dioxide, ten thousand tons of sulfur dioxide, ten thousand tons of dust and ten thousand tons of nitrogen oxides every year, which is of positive significance for the protection of the ecological environment in southern Xinjiang.
According to the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region's Plan for the Implementation of the Coal and Power Transformation Project (Phase I) in the Four Regions of Southern Xinjiang (2019-2021), this year the four states of southern Xinjiang will complete the \"coal to electricity\" for 10,000 residents and achieve the goal of \"coal to electricity\" for a total of 900,000 households by the end of 2021.
