HCMC – Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) has announced that the electricity demand in the northern region is met starting from today, June 23, as the water levels in hydropower reservoirs have risen.

According to data from the National Load Dispatch Center on June 21, the peak power generation capacity systemwide has increased to 41,514.7MW, while power loss in transmission lines decreased by 4.3 million kWh compared to previous days, reaching 852.3 million kWh.

Hydropower plants have supplied over 5,000MW to the northern region, equivalent to 74 million kWh, while thermal power plants have contributed 11,875 MW, accounting for approximately 269.5 million kWh.

With the onset of the flood season in the northern region, water levels in reservoirs are expected to rise further. This will ensure a stable electricity supply, with an estimated daily load of around 421 million kWh.

On June 22, the water levels in hydropower reservoirs in northern provinces such as Tuyen Quang, Son La, Lai Chau, and Hoa Binh ranged from 1.5 to 22 meters above the dead water levels.

Other reservoirs, including Thai Bac, Huoi Quang, Ban Ve, and Quang Tri, have water levels at around 0.9-1.7 meters above the threshold for safe electricity generation.

Furthermore, technical issues in several thermal power plants have been resolved.
