As of September this year, over 9,000 communes throughout the country or 99.4 percent have been connected with the national power grid.

Notably, two undersea power transmission cable projects linking the island districts of Phu Quoc in southern Kien Giang province and Ly Son in central Quang Ngai province to the national grid were put into operation in February and September this year.

The two projects have benefited more than 21,000 households in the two districts, helping to raise the percentage of households with power supply to 98.4 percent.

The Electricity of Vietnam has sold power to over 85 percent of communes nationwide, with more than 81 percent of rural households.

The group is also running a range of projects in a bid to improve the efficiency of its power supply.-VNA
