Tran Dinh Nhan,General Director of Vietnam Electricity (EVN) at a recent meeting with the key leadership of the Southern Power Corporation (EVNSPC) requested that EVNSPC needs a stronger development strategy on the production,business, investment and construction situation in Ho Chi Minh City .
According to General Director of EVNSPC Nguyen Phuoc Duc, the commercial power output of EVNSPC in the first four months of 2020 reached more than 24.11 billion kWh, an increase of 4.63% compared to that of the same period in 2019. Due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, the commercial power production of EVN’s member companies has not increased much compared to that of the same period in 2019.
The Corporation has commenced 5/72 works and energized 2/56 electrical works of 110 – 220kV and a total capacity of installed solar rooftop was about 111MWp (32% of EVN’s plan in the year). The power output generated from these systems on the accumulated grids by April 2020 reached 71.24 million kWh.
The General Director requires EVNSPC to promptly take initiative in ensuring an adequate supply of power to the South and have a stronger development strategy, becoming a major power unit in the region.
He asked EVNSPC to synchronously implement solutions to ensure safe and stable power supply to customers; disseminate specific solutions to save electricity, encourage people to install and use rooftop solar power, develop load-regulating scenarios to deploy it in necessary cases.
He added that “EVNSPC should continue to accelerate the installation of electronic meters and distance-reading systems; review and enhance the safety assurance of medium and low voltage grids, especially during high tide; improve SAIDI”.
