Rural farms are mainly located in the remote areas without access to modern and clean energy. In this lesson we find out how farms in rural China are turning to renewable energy for sustainable and efficient farming, generate electricity for local needs, reduce pollution and drive tourism. We use the idiom 物尽其用 which means to make the best of it to describe how these farms in China are making the best of green energy farming to deliver multiple benefits. 农村农场主要位于偏远地区,无法获得现代清洁能源。 在本课中,我们将了解中国农村的农场如何利用可再生能源实现可持续高效农业,为当地需求发电,减少污染并推动旅游业发展。我们用物尽其用,这意味着要充分利用它来描述中国的这些农场如何充分利用绿色能源农业来实现多种效益。 農村農場主要位於偏遠地區,無法獲得現代清潔能源。在本課中,我們將了解中國農村的農場如何利用可再生能源實現可持續高效農業,為當地需求發電,減少污染並推動旅遊業發展。我們用物盡其用,這意味著要充分利用它來描述中國的這些農場如何充分利用綠色能源農業來實現多種效益。
