The Central Highlands province of Dak Lak will pour 150 billion VND (7.1 million USD) to bring electricity to 35 of its remote villages, which have sprung up as a result of spontaneous migration.

The sum will be spent between now and 2015, as part of its 75.6 million USD electrification scheme covering all villages and households by 2020.

According to statistics, 95 percent of villages in the province have been connected to the national power grid.

Dak Lak currently counts over 5,700 households in 189 villages without electricity, mostly in far-flung districts of Ea Sup, Buon Don, Lak, Cu M’gar, Ea Kar and Ma D’rak.

Since early this year, the Dak Lak power company has sold 460 million kWh of electricity, up 8.35 percent year-on-year.-VNA
