Just experienced my first power cut for a long long time. Was in a net bar, and everything just went dead. Lights, computers, everything – off.
I these parts power cuts used to be pretty frequent, but in the last few years the government has got its act together and is generating enough power – infact (so i’m told) in a few years time there will be a massive over supply problem as many of the newly constructed plants come on-line.
I just wish they’d consider other alternatives to burning coal, as it’s so disgustingly dirty and bad for pretty much everything associated with the environment. It’s cheap and readily available and that’s it. I was thinking wind farms would go down a treat in dongbei, afterall, it’s windy all year, it’s flat and easy to construct here- and there’s no shortage of free space. However renewable energy is a long term solution, and people in power round here are short term thinkers.
