HCMC – The Northern Power Corporation (EVNNPC), a subsidiary of the Vietnam Electricity Group, has called on residents in northern Vietnam to conserve electricity as the region is facing tight power supplies caused by heat waves and ebbing water levels at hydropower plants.

The corporation has increased its manpower and equipment to cope with power blackouts.

In order to tackle the prolonged hot weather and power source shortages while ensuring the safety of the national power system, EVNNPC has been closely coordinating with the Power System Dispatch to cope with reduced power output by engaging customers in load adjustment and energy-saving practices.

To alleviate the power undersupply, EVNNPC is managing grid overloading and collaborating with the National Load Dispatch Center to curtail power consumption through energy conservation initiatives.

In May, EVNNPC reported a total commercial electricity output of over seven billion kWh, a 5.7% increase against the same period in 2022. The electricity usage breakdown includes 63% for the construction industry, 29% for consumption management, 3.2% for trade and services, 1.7% for agriculture, forestry, and fishery, and 2.9% for other activities.
