To ensure electricity supply for residents and production in the city, since the end of 2018, EVN Hanoi has outlined measures and assigned concrete tasks to subordinate units.
In 2019, the corporation requested units to upgrade 271 power works worth VND411 billion (roughly USD18 million). Some of them will be completed before April 30 to reinforce the power grid infrastructure.
Moreover, EVN Hanoi has invested VND5,662 billion (USD246 million) in completing 220kV and 110kV transformer stations; and urged project management units to put in operation some key works in an effort to provide enough power in summer in 2019.
Besides, the corporation has promoted the application of science and technology in the management and operation so as to ensure safe and stable power supply for residents and production.
At the press conference, the EVN Hanoi leader also recommended the Municipal People’s Committee along with departments, sectors and agencies to continue supporting power units in building power supply works as planned while requesting local governments to speed up land clearance for key power grid works.
He also called on local residents to jointly protect grid safety corridors to avoid incidents; reduce the number of devices that over-consume power at rush hour (from 9.30AM to 11.30AM and 5.00PM to 8.00PM from Monday to Saturday every week).
