The mainland media reported that Guangdong, Guangxi and Yunnan have started “orderly power consumption” one after another. With the power shortage becoming increasingly severe, some areas in Guangdong even began to implement weekly power restrictions at the end of May, resulting in many factories being unable to ship goods normally and residents experiencing difficulties in their lives, causing public discontent.

Caixin reported that Guangdong, including Guangzhou, Foshan, Dongguan, Huizhou, Zhuhai, Zhongshan, Chaozhou, Shantou, Zhaoqing, Jiangmen and other areas, in mid-May to start the “orderly use of electricity”, but some areas have now been further tightened to “open four and stop three”. .

Huizhou City, Guangdong Province, the creation of electronic 24 received the local power supply office notice, the week 24, 25, 28 three days will be implemented “orderly power”. This will cause the company’s order delivery schedule to be affected, and it has to rent a generator urgently.

TVBS reports that in Guangzhou, a first-tier city in mainland China, residents are complaining of daily power outages. It was so dark that people even had to read by candlelight.

The lack of electricity is making people hot. But even the industrial zone is also limited electricity, factory machines are halted, air conditioning can not be turned on, there are garment factories, can only do simple manual needlework first.

In the video circulated on the Internet, Guangdong residents: “OMG scared me to death”

Guangdong residents: “This location is not called a location, a continuous power outage for four nights, which calls us how to do ah.”

According to the data released by the mainland National Energy Administration in the middle of this month, from January to April, the mainland’s total social electricity consumption grew by a whopping 19.1% year-on-year.

Caixin pointed out that in May, Guangdong even appeared 800 to 11 million kilowatts of power shortage, the largest power gap of 6.02% to 8.3%. The neighboring Guangxi Province is also facing the same problem of power shortage. Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region recently announced that from May 25 to 30, the highest demand for electricity in Guangxi will reach 27 million kilowatts, the largest power shortage is expected to be 3 million kilowatts. For this reason, Guangxi will implement peak and peak avoidance plans.

China’s power crunch also occurred last December and January, when Hunan, Jiangxi and Zhejiang provinces experienced power outages or restrictions. But what upset the public most was that when mainland China was in the midst of a cold winter, with recent record low temperatures in many places, there were rumors of power outages and restrictions in several provinces, causing public discontent to boil over.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang later had to speak out and demand that artificial supply cuts should never be allowed. The power restrictions and blackouts across China, coupled with rising coal prices, have led to speculation about whether China’s power generation capacity has been hit by the ban on Australian coal imports. The inside story has sparked much speculation.

Netizens said that the power shortage fear in the mainland has become the norm, the winter power restrictions, the summer also to limit power. There are also netizens ridicule: boycott Australia’s coal, and smash their own feet.
