Lam Dong (VNA) – A project designed to bring electricity to the last seven hamlets in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong was completed on February 6.

Accordingly, all households in the province are now connected to the national grid ahead of the 2018 Lunar New Year.

This is the result of a three-month project to enable 650 households in the seven hamlets of Vinh Ninh, No.3 and No.4 of Phuoc Cat 2 commune, along with R’Hang Tru, Phuc Cat of Phuc Tho commune, Phuc Trach hamlet of Lien Ha commune and Nao Quang hamlet of Loc Phu commune.

The project has a total capital of 28.6 billion VND (1.26 million USD), invested by the Lam Dong Electricity Company. About 70km of electric lines and 20 transformer stations with capacity of 1,000 KVA were installed under the project.

Director of the company Thai Dac Toan said that the seven hamlets are located in remote and mountainous areas and local residents are mainly ethnic minority people.-VNA
