HCMC – The country’s daily electricity consumption reached one billion kWh on May 28, the highest level ever, said the Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN).

Data from the National Load Dispatch Center, however, showed that the peak capacity of the power grid on May 28 was still below the peak of 47,670 MW set in late April.

However, daily electricity consumption today hit a new record high of more than one billion kWh for the first time ever.

In the northern region, after a week of heavy rain, the sweltering heat has returned in recent days, causing a sudden spike in electricity demand.

Statistics from the EVNHANOI showed that the city’s electricity consumption was put at 75.3 million kWh on May 25 and 94 million kWh on May 27. The next day, it reached 98.7 million kWh, the highest so far this year.

According to EVN, the power sector is taking measures to ensure power supply, including increasing electricity imports, expediting investment in electricity generation and transmission projects, and promoting efficient electricity usage.
