Electricty shortage around China, Why?

Hunan, Hubei, Shanxi, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Chongqing, Guizhou, Shannxi,... More than half of China announced either the shortage of electricty supply or the shortage in the coming summer.

Why?
In 2010,
Supply: The capacity of electricity production was 0.96 billion KW.
Demand: the consumption is 0.419 billion KW.
Demand/Supply = 40%

And then so much excess supply, What caused the present electricity shortage?

Let us examine one single case:
the supply and the demand of Hunan province.
The capacity of electricity production is 14.17 million KW. But the present production is only 7 million KW. More than half of electricity generators cease working.

In Henan province, 20% of electricity generators cease working.

From 2008, the major 5 largest electricity power plant companies had a deficit of RMB 60 Billion in total.  
the price of coal was rising, the labor cost, and managment cost of electricity power plants were rising.
But the price of electricity sold by electricity power plants was fixed.
(though the price of electricity bought by ordinary Chinese was rising.)

The profits of State Grid of China had soared 1828% in the first 11 month of 2010, or a profit of RMB 59.2 Billion.

The electricity power plants are factories. State Grid of China has a monopoly on the circulation in mainland China.

State Grid of China dominated 65% of business earnings of the whole electricity industry.
Factories suffer heavy loss. State Grid enjoy huge wealth.

No doubt Chinese electricity power plants actually choose to strike now.

But who would suffer from the fight between electricity power plants and elctricity grid?
It's Chinese people, It's Chinese economy.

Chinese State Grid are dying for too much money.
Chinese electricity plants are dying for too little money.

Insufficient excess capacity for the DRY SEASON - determined by the kinetic water storage. (I remember, the three gorge was filled to the brim last year - yet it's been tapped too fast early part before the next season's rains).

and the April peak manufacturing, in last part of the dry season!
China would probably need to expand combine cycle natural gas coastal plant, and nuclear power plant to improve spare capacity for the entire state.. In the interest of EFFICIENT USE of electricity capacity, manufacturer should adjust output to reflect electricity production - Electricity supplier should have a "supply volume" arrangement with major users - this will prevent "shortage" of KINETIC STORE electricity!

Manufacturers can negotiate for contracts based on available capacity in form of workers, electricity and available water.

Goodness gracious, we seem to be looking at

..........an export volume closer to US$2 trillion!

Why does China needs to export so much production for constantly DEVALUATING US$?

cheerios!

One government official from association of elecricity industry acknowledged that 60% China's electricity supply ceased working so far.
China's electricity supply is far more than electricity demand.

According to the data from energy bureau of China, the growth rate of electricity demand in west China is more than the everaged rate in the whole China.
Xinjiang 34.8%, Inner Mongolia 22.3%, Gansu 17.5%, Ningxia 18.1%, ***

The steel, Aluminum, and other industries with electicity heavy costed were transffered to west China. This greatly contributed to the growth of electicity demand in West China.
