SON HA GROUP COOPERATED WITH EVN HANOI IN DEVELOPING ROOFTOP SOLAR POWER PROJECT
On March 12, in Hanoi, Hanoi City Power Corporation – Vietnam Electricity (EVN HANOI) and Son Ha Group held the ceremony to sign the cooperation agreement in developing rooftop solar power.
In recent years, the development of renewable energy sources, especially solar energy, has been assessed as very potential in Vietnam, but there has not been adequate investment. According to the Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN), as of the end of November 2019, 19,378 rooftop solar power systems were installed nationwide, with a total capacity of 318 MW.
To ensure national energy security, taking advantage of large roof area in residential areas, businesses that already have adequate grid infrastructure is an effective solution today. The application of rooftop solar battery system to generate electricity to not only provide electricity for people’s daily and production activities, but also reduces the load pressure on the grid, saving costs for developing power distribution lines. The Prime Minister issued Decision No. 02/2019 / QD-TTg dated January 8, 2019 – amending and supplementing a number of articles of Decision No. 11/2017 / QD-TTG dated April 11, 2017 on incentives to develop solar power. Mobilizing social partners to cooperate in developing renewable energy is a solution that brings both economic benefits for investors, contributes to reducing pressure on the electricity industry, and provides more optimal options about electricity for businesses and people.
With that spirit, on March 12, 2020, EVN HANOI signed a cooperation agreement to develop rooftop solar power in Hanoi City with Son Ha Group – a leading enterprise in developing Clean energy in Vietnam. Accordingly, EVN HANOI will assist enterprises in propagating policies and regulations of the law and create conditions to support installation, acceptance and two-way meter connection when enterprises deploy operation. At the same time, Son Ha Group also ensures the quality of the projects, provides equipment and technical solutions in compliance with the Circular No. 39/2015 / TT-BCT dated November 18, 2015 of the Ministry of Industry and Trade on Regulation on electricity distribution system and Circular No. 30/2019 / TT-BCT dated November 28, 2019 on amending and supplementing a number of articles of Circular No. 25/2016 / TT-BCT in the regulation of power transmission systems. Son Ha’s rooftop solar power products (free solar) apply a warranty policy of up to 15 years (for solar batteries) and maintenance is completely free for the first 2 years.
People and businesses (factories, industrial parks etc.), when installing rooftop solar power products from Son Ha Group, will be committed to connecting to the national electricity grid to facilitate the electricity use for their own demands and they also can sell electricity back to the power company at a favorable price. This promises to be a product that is suitable for many customers, from small households (with only a roof area of over 12m2 and no shielding, consuming over 1 million VND / month on electricity) to factories, businesses, hotels etc. with a large roof area and huge electricity consumption. In particular, this will not only help to reduce the pressure load on the power grid, with an estimated installation cost of 20 million VND / 1 Kwp (depending on installation conditions), customers will only take 5-6 years to be able to pay back their initial investment (rooftop solar PV installation costs) and receive profit.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Le Vinh Son – Chairman of Son Ha Group committed that: Son Ha is very proud to officially cooperate and accompany with EVN HANOI in the goal of developing rooftop solar power products in Hanoi city. We commit, together with EVN HANOI, to disseminate information about the benefits of products on the economy, the environment, and the government’s electricity purchase policy. At the same time as a pioneer in the field of renewable energy, Son Ha will provide international standard quality rooftop solar power products, ensuring high performance, durability, stability, security and safety for customers as well as the electricity grid of EVN HANOI.
Son Ha has extensive experience in installing rooftop solar power products
The contract signed between EVN HANOI and Son Ha Group is expected to be a pioneer in building a typical cooperation model between EVN and private enterprises, bringing rooftop solar power product which is “good for the people-benefit for the state” to every household, office, factory.
