Thanks to a stable and sufficient power supply, made possible by upgrading the old rural power grid in Guangxi province … air conditioners at the local inns and machineries in factories can now be turned on whenever needed … an testament to a well-thought out management of a thoroughly remolded rural power grid in China.
