For the time being, 100% of Ca Mau’s communes have been supplied electricity to their centers and 87.19% of households in the province, approximately 223,795 households, is using power for everyday life’s activities and production. Ca Mau is attempting to raise this rate to 89% at the end of this year based on the development of low-voltage power network.

Accordingly, Ca Mau, with the total investment of about VND 15 billion, concentrates on developing the low-voltage power network in agglomerations with high demand and the communes, districts and economic regions with low density of households using electricity. The province continues to carry out the project on water and power supply for forestry companies and the management board of protective forests with the capital resource of over VND 11,75 billion derived from JBIC (Japan). Ca Mau will complete the rural energy project No.2 by the loan for 2008 from World Bank of more than VND 11.5 billion.

However, the development of low-voltage power network in Ca Mau is facing numerous difficulties taking root from areas which is without electricity, has low population density and too many rivers and canals, and requires huge investment and so on. Many areas in the province, especially the remote ones, have already finished the medium-voltage power network; still the citizens have never had chances to use power owing to the lack of low-voltage lines. Using self-connected power is a rather popular situation among households, which is insecure and can cause power loss.

In 2007, Ca Mau province completed and put into action 55 km of the medium-voltage line, 488 km of the low-voltage line and the 825 kVA transformer substations with the entire investment of more than VND 42 billion.
