Hohhot in North China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region is close to the Yellow River and the coal resources of Juungar Banner in Inner Mongolia and Shanxi province -- and it has convenient road and rail transportation, abundant water resources and good power transmission infrastructure, making it perfect for development of the power industry.
It has several large power stations, including the Datang Togtoh Power, Hohhot Thermal Power and Jinqiao Thermal Power plants.
Hohhot’s installed power capacity is 12.73 million kilowatts and Datang Togtoh Power plant alone delivers nearly 30 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity to Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei annually.
Affected by the overhaul of some units of Datang Togtoh Power plant at the beginning of 2019, the growth of the city's power energy industry slowed down.
From January to August in 2019, the total output value was 26.87 billion yuan ($3.78 billion), an increase of 3.5 percent year-on-year, accounting for 28.9 percent of the city's total industrial output value.
In 2019, the city achieved an annual power generation of 56.77 billion kWh.
