The project opens up a new period of clean, hi-tech energy development and is expected to benefit the province’s socio-economic development, while contributing to environmental protection, climate change response, greenhouse gas emission reduction and sustainable development.

Covering 50 hectares in Vinh Hao commune, Tuy Phong district, the VND 1 billion (US$44,000) plant has a designed capacity of 30MW, using technologies provided by the world’s leading businesses such as Jinko Solar, Power Electronic and Daihen.

Once operational in June 2019, it will churn out roughly 63 million kWh of electricity, serving power demand in production and daily activities in the province.
