Recently, the State Council of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China issued the Guiding Opinions on Winning the Three-Year War Against Poverty (here in after referred to as the Opinions). By 2020, all the poverty-stricken villages need to be powered by electricity, and the power grid will be extended to all counties.

The "Opinions" proposed that the main areas of basic public services to achieve poverty-stricken areas close to the national average, including all poor villages to use power. We will concentrate our efforts to support poverty alleviation in poor areas. Efforts should be made to improve the conditions for the development of poverty-stricken areas, push forward the construction of rural power grids in poverty-stricken areas, and achieve full coverage of rural power grids. Strengthen the construction of the "three districts and three states" power grid, speed up the solution of the problems of weak grid structure and low power supply quality. We will make great efforts to solve the special difficulties of the people in the poverty-stricken areas, and start the implementation of the upgrade and transformation of the power grid in the villages near the border. We will intensify the measures to help people from villages to households accurately, increase the intensity of industrial poverty alleviation, focus on the construction of photovoltaic power stations at the village level in poverty-stricken areas in an orderly manner.

The opinion stressed that we should vigorously implement the power poverty alleviation operation. Implement the transformation and upgrading of rural power grids in poverty-stricken areas, strengthen the construction of power infrastructure, establish a monitoring and evaluation system for power universal service in poverty-stricken areas, guide grid enterprises to do a good job in rural power construction management and power supply services in poverty-stricken areas, and realize the extension of large power grids to all counties and cities by 2020. We should vigorously promote the development and utilization of renewable energy resources in rural areas in poor areas.
