Vietnam to have 2,000 MW of rooftop solar power capacity in 2020

Published onSeptember 5, 2019

The country’s total rooftop solar power capacity is expected to reach around 2,000 MW by the end of 2020, according to Vietnam Electricity (EVN). EVN said more than 4,000 households have installed rooftop solar power systems over the past three months with a total capacity of 200 MW. It estimated that an additional 300 MW of rooftop solar power will be added by the end of 2019, helping to ensure the nation’s power security. As traditional power sources run out, the development of renewable energy infrastructure including rooftop solar power is crucial to provide enough power to Vietnam’s growing population.
