Solar plants face a consumption crisis

Vietnam News – Việt Nam’s solar power plants are facing a crisis in consumption of their electricity because there has not been synchronous development of power transmission infrastructure or a suitable operation mechanism.

The National Load Dispatch Centre under the Electricity of Việt Nam (EVN) has just announced it is considering reducing the volume of electricity transmitted from all solar plants into the national grid to deal with overloaded transmission lines.

… Electric transmission systems in Ninh Thuận and Bình Thuận are overloaded because they were not designed to handle the large number of solar plants located in the two central provinces, he said.
