A VND2.4 trillion (US$104.5 million) solar power plant was inaugurated in Van Ninh District, the central province of Khanh Hoa on Saturday.

The plant was invested by the KN Van Ninh Solar Development and Investment Company and first generated electricity for the national grid on December 11 this year, with an output of nearly 162,000 MWh a year.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Vice Chairman of Khanh Hoa People’s Committee Dinh Van Thieu said the plant has boosted the national electricity generation capacity and created jobs for local labourers.

The development of renewable energy, including solar energy, is in line with the Government’s strategy for sustainable growth, contributing to national energy security, realising commitments on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and pushing economic restructuring, he said.

The official affirmed the provincial administration will continue to support and create favourable conditions for enterprises to invest in the locality. — VNS
