The total installed capacity of the Photovoltaic Power Station for Poverty Alleviation is 45KWp, and the service life of the system is up to 25 years. The full amount of generated electricity is sold to the state grid, and granted a national subsidy. Revenue from power generation is calculated at 0.85 RMB per kWh. The earnings are directly transferred to the account for Qiaotou Village by the local power supply bureau.
The Passion Fruit Industrial Base for Poverty Alleviation covers an area of 50 mu (8.2 acres), and commissions local enterprises to specialize in growing passion fruit. The fruit is bought in unified purchases as per market price, and the earnings go to Qiaotou Village after deducting overhead costs. The priority is focused on putting impoverished Qiaotou villagers to work.
In addition, Director Wang Youming and Deputy Director Zhang Feimeng visited and reassured the poverty-stricken residents in Qiaotou Village that their future does indeed look brighter.
