Shanghai Huagang Wind Power -- a joint venture between Shanghai Environment Group and Shanghai Huadian Electric Power Development -- is installing 15, 1.5 MW turbines at a landfill site near the East China Sea in Shanghai. Due for completion by 2008, the CNY 200 million ($25 million) 22.5 MW project is the first phase of what will eventually be a CNY 800 million ($100 million) 100 MW wind farm. The second and third phases are planned for next year. Shanghai currently has just three small wind farms with a combined capacity of 25 MW. "By 2010 the total wind power capacity of Shanghai will be around 300 MW -- two per cent of the city's total installed power capacity," according to Li Xin of the Shanghai Development and Reform Commission, speaking publicly last year.
