A number of Chinese provinces are building so many wind turbines that it will be impossible for consumers to use all the electricity. The national energy authority has therefore requested three regions to postpone planned wind-energy projects, and two regions were ordered to immediately halt approving additional projects.

This means that even approved wind installations will have to be postponed, and further project approval must not be given until the existing power can be utilized.
