The cumulative power generation from six hydropower stations built on the Yangtze River has exceeded three trillion kilowatt hours (kWh). The Wudongde, Baihetan, Xiluodu, Xiangjiaba, Gezhouba hydropower stations, and the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River have formed the world’s largest clean energy corridor. Since the first unit was put into operation in July 1981, the six hydropower stations have generated electricity equivalent to 910 million tons of standard coal, preventing emissions of 240 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
