The Quang Binh provincial People’s Committee and the Schneider Electric Vietnam Company have signed a contract to build a solar-power station.

The Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) pilot project, the first of its kind in Vietnam, will be funded and carried out by Schneider Electric. The station is expected to begin generating power by the end of June.

The non-profit project aims to minimise negative effect on the environment and promote the use of green, clean, sustainable energy.

More than 35 households will benefit from this solar power station, which has a designed capacity of about 11kW.

If successful, similar projects will be deployed on a wider scale, assisted by preferential loans from international investment funds.
