Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnam Electricity (EVN) purchased a total of 8.16 billion kWh of renewable power in the first nine months of this year, of which 7.23 billion kWh, or 88.6 percent, were generated by solar power projects.

The nine-month solar power buyback was 2.6-fold higher year-on-year.

EVN’s electricity output in September, including imported power, totalled 21.32 billion kWh, a year-on-year increase of 8.17 percent, thanks to surging demand amid the post-COVID-19 economic recovery.

The State-run corporation produced 710.7 million kWh per day on average, with the highest daily figure touching 778.75 million kWh.

Electricity output reached 185.37 billion kWh in the first nine months, up 2.68 percent year-on-year.

EVN has broken ground on 107 power projects this year and put into operation 100 110-500kV transmission lines./.
