BY MARK HORTON/AP Beijing, Sept. 21 (UPI) China plans a record-breaking 1 million megawatt wind power project that will provide a boost to its economy and power demand, but will be difficult to finance, state media said Tuesday.

The Central Electricity Administration said the 1.4 billion yuan ($20.4 million) project will be the largest in China and the first of its kind in the world.

The project is part of China’s plans to ramp up its renewable energy capacity, the Xinhua News Agency reported.

The Xinhua report did not provide details on the financing or construction costs.
