This is the largest cluster of solar power plants in Southeast Asia so far.
 
The construction of the cluster started in January 2018, and a power purchase contract was signed with the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) in late 2018. 
 
Built with a total investment of 7 trillion VND (301.3 million USD), with over 1 million solar panels were installed, the cluster is expected to produce about 600 million kWh of electricity and serve about 200,000 households per year, and contribute to reducing about 300,000 tonnes of CO2  discharged into the environment per year. 
 
The same day, the first phase of the Trung Nam complex of solar and wind renewable power plants in Thuan Bac district also became operational. 
 
With a total investment of 10 trillion VND, the complex’s first phase has a total capacity of 409.95 MW. It is expected to generate 423kWh of wind power and 577 million kWh of solar power per year. 
 
The complex is directly connected to the national grid through the 220kV Thap Cham transformer. This is the first and largest solar and wind renewable power complex in Vietnam so far. 
 
Speaking at the event, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam praised efforts made by investors for completing the cluster and the complex. 
 
He hoped investors would continue to research, invest and develop more renewable energy projects in Ninh Thuan, the locality boasts great potential in this field, towards turning it into a renewable energy centre of the country.
