HCMC – Hau Giang Province has proposed the Ministry of Industry and Trade add 12 wind and solar power projects to the national energy development plan, said Huynh Thanh Phong, director of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade.
After reviewing the potential for renewable power development, it has been found that the province can generate 900 megawatts (MW) of solar power and 350 MW of wind power.
The proposal is aimed at making the most of the potential in renewable power to boost the province’s socio-economic growth, the local media reported.
If approved, eight solar power plants and four wind power farms in Long My, Phung Hiep and Vi Thuy District and Vi Thanh City will be developed in 2021-2025.
In March last year, a 29-MW solar power facility in Hoa An Commune in Phung Hiep District was commissioned, contributing to effectively exploiting its potential in renewable power in the Mekong Delta province.
The solar power plant has been providing electricity for Long My Town and Long My District.
