Hanoi (VNA) – The Northern Power Corporation under the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN NPC) supplied electricity for over 9.2 million customers across 27 northern localities in 2016.

Chairman and General Director of the EVN NPC Thieu Kim Quynh said the group’s total commercial electricity output surpassed 51.1 billion kWh in 2016, a year-on-year increase of 14.12 percent, the highest level among five EVN corporations.

The rate of electricity loss last year was calculated at 6.09 percent, an annual decline of 0.59 percent, he said, adding that 98.6 percent of rural households were connected to the national grid.

At the end of 2016, three members of the EVN NPC, namely the northern electricity information-technology company, Thai Binh and Quang Ninh power companies, completed the building of the Balance Scorecard (BSC) and Key Performance Indicator (KPI) to improve the operational efficiency.

In 2016, the EVN NPC fulfilled its labour productivity target of 2.9 million kWh per head, a yearly rise of 15.7 percent.

This year, the corporation strives to ensure safe and stable electricity for domestic customers./.
