Temporary power cuts in China are regularly organized – especially in the wintertime. There are a variety of possible reasons for this e.g. electricity supply issues or regulations to protect the environment. Since a few weeks, a new power supply cut has been realized. To meet environmental goals, the country’s environmental officer arranged the measure.

Who is affected by the power supply cut?

The regions affected most particularly are Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong, Yunnan, Guizhou and Guangdong. But not everyone is affected by the restriction. Initially, the companies have been ordered to halt production to meet energy consumption targets. This arrangement primarily covers companies in the textile, dyeing, and chemical fiber industries. There may also be temporary power outranges in private households.

Consequences of power supply cut

According to the latest information, production will be impacted for several weeks at least. Every province’s government makes its individual regulations. This influences the availability and price of some raw materials like fibers or phosphor. Short-term product shortages may occur.
