Adjust font size:

China's power generation is expected to see solid growth in the third quarter, in line with the recovery in industrial activities, industry insiders said yesterday.

Power generation is expected to rebound in the third quarter, ending the consecutive drop in the first five months, said an executive with State Grid, the country's main power transmission company.

Recovery in economy plays a vital role in the rebound, he said. Some regions that have many high power consuming industries have seen robust growth in power demand in July.

The high temperature in the summer will also push up the use of electricity, he said, asking not to be named.

Affected by the financial crisis, power generation in the second half of last year was relatively low, which made it possible for large growth this year, he added.

China's power generation began to see first year-on-year increase in June, with growth rate of 3.6 percent, according to State Grid.

Statistics from State Grid showed that in the first 10 days of this month, China's power generation increased by 3 percent on average on a daily basis.
