China's first wind/PV power hybrid system was successfully combined to the grid recently at Huaneng Nan'ao Wind Power Park and put to commercial operation. The 100-kilowatt solar photovoltaic equipment adopted in the system is also China's first solar photovoltaic system that has been combined into the grid and put to commercial operation.

The wind power-generating equipment in the system makes use of high-altitude wind energy while the photovoltaic equipment utilizes the ground solar energy between the turbines. These help to fully utilize land resources. Meanwhile the sharing of power transmission and transformation equipment and management personnel reduces operation cost. It initiates a new way to comprehensively exploit wind and solar energy resources and indicates that China has entered a new phase in exploiting and utilizing photovoltaic power generation. It is of great reference significance for constructing large wind/photovoltaic hybrid commercial projects in terms of technology and management. The system was developed and constructed by Huaneng Renewable Energy & Environmental Protection (holding) Corporation.
