We are constructing a capacity of 1000 megawatts with a capacity of 10 megawatts and 100 competition announcements. This is a draft for the moment. We plan to open capacities ranging from 10 to 50 megawatts for 39 provinces. When determining the capacities, we have selected especially the provinces where annual sunbathing rates are above a certain level. We have selected provinces that we think will not create technical problems for the enterprise. We will clarify the technical issues after receiving the opinions from the sector. In April 2020, we are planning to receive bids. It was a development expected by our sector for a long time. We think that these competitions will create a vitality in the sector.”
