Its water energy resources account for over 60 percent of Guangxi's total, with 152 large, medium, and small hydropower stations in the vicinity. The city's annual electricity generation amounts to 27 billion kilowatt-hours, making a significant contribution to carbon reduction efforts.

With an average annual solar radiation of 4,275.2 megajoules per square meter, Hechi is classified as having "abundant resources" in terms of solar energy.

Qin Chuncheng, Party cheif of Hechi city, said that Hechi will strive to build a pilot zone for green development and take advantage of the newly-opened Guiyang-Nanning High-Speed Railway.
