EVNHANOI and SONHA Group cooperate in developing rooftop solar power systems
On March 12, 2020 Hanoi Electricity Corporation (EVNHANOI) and SONHA Group signed an agreement to cooperate in developing the rooftop solar power systems in Hanoi city.
Investment in developing solar energy, including rooftop solar power, is one of the solutions contributing to struggle against climate change by reducing greenhouse gas (CO2), to decreasing load for power plants of power sector, supplying electricity for daily life and production of people with the benefits in reducing pressure on the distribution power grid and saving costs for developing transmission power grid.
Mr. Nguyen Danh Duyen - General Director of EVNHANOI said: Mobilizing the partners for cooperation and development is a solution bringing the economic effectiveness for the investors and benefits for customers using electricity.
In 2020, when installing rooftop solar power systems, EVNHANOI and SONHA will support VND in cash for customers as 2 million for systems with capacity of less than 3 kWp and 5 million for systems with capacity from 3 kWp up; carry out the procedures related to replacing 2-way electricity meters, providing free maintenance services for the system in the first 2 years.
In addition, the rooftop solar power systems of the large customers (enterprises, industrial parks, hotels…) will be committed to connecting to the national power grid for convenient use and can sell back to the power company at a preferential price.
With the investment cost of about 20 million VND/1kWp for the rooftop solar power systems (depending to installing conditions), the customers can pay back initial capital for 5-6 years only and then take profits.
