The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) will reduce installation times for customers to access the medium-voltage transmission network from 18 to 10 business days in response to Government Resolution 19 to improve the business environment in Vietnam.

Electricity connection procedures will also be cut from five to four steps, which now include application submission, site visit, technical and design negotiation, installation and signing of electricity supply contract.

Customers can find information regarding procedure and application requirements in all EVN branches and on its official website where they can track the progress of their application online.

The state-owned company has worked hard to improve the electricity-access index in recent years, resulting in installation time reductions for medium-voltage line connection from 55 to 18 working days in 2014.

In the first seven months of 2015, the average time for customers to gain electricity access was 10.3 days.-VNA
