However, due to many factors, there are still many contradictions and problems in the construction of rural power grids in our country. In rural areas in the central and western remote areas, the transformation of rural power grids is low. Most agricultural power supply facilities, independently managed farms, forest farms and self-supply areas for small hydropower have not been rebuilt.
