When the subsidies are not available,
rural areas are left without electricity.
Yuan also states that this is an exciting time for rural electrification.
Recent innovations in renewable
generation, energy efficiency, and grid
modernization offer tremendous opportunities for the development of
new rural electric infrastructures that
will leapfrog the traditional centralized power systems, much like the
way digital networks vaulted over the
plain old telephone system during the
telecom boom in the 1990s. The abundance of sun, wind, water, and land
resources in rural areas, combined
with these new methods of generating, storing, delivering, and consuming energy, holds the promise that rural areas are not only able to meet its
own electricity demand through local
