BEIJING (Agencies): According to a report by China Central Television (CCTV), more than 700 Chinese frontier outposts have connected to the national power grid, which has boosted the Chinese military’s capabilities in border defense, including improving the living conditions of troops and the deployment of advanced, power-consuming weapons and equipment.

By the end of 2023, more than 700 remote outposts of border defense companies were successively connected to the national power grid, CCTV reported. Since then, Chinese defense outposts have formed an energy support system relying mainly on electricity from the grid, which is supported by fuel, solar energy and wind energy, the report said.

This has further elevated the Chinese military’s border management and control capabilities by making the power supply to military equipment more secure and reliable, border defense energy consumption cleaner and environment-friendly, in addition to improving living conditions for troops stationed along border areas as well as their combat readiness.
