Currently, EVNHCMC is deploying the installation at headquarters of the remaining 3 units, including Hoc Mon Power Company, Thu Duc Power Company and Duyen Hai Power Company. After the installation being completed at 19/19 affiliated units, the total capacity of rooftop solar power connected to the grid of EVNHCMC will be 1,151.4kWp.

In Ho Chi Minh City, 475 customers have currently installed rooftop solar power systems, connecting to the grid, managed by the Corporation, with a total capacity of 5,280.44kWp. Of which, more than 340 customers have registered to sell their surplus power for the Power sector.

In order to support customers, EVNHCMC has proactively deployed testing the technical requirements for solar power system connected to the grid as specified in Circular No. 39/2015/TT-BCT and installed two-way electrometers free of charge for customers in need of grid connection.

Monthly, Power companies organize collecting indicators of power consumption and solar power reversely loaded to the grid for customers who have been installed with two-way electrometers.

However, It is impossible for EVNHCMC to sign any purchase contracts of solar power because the Ministry of Industry and Trade has not issued an official guideline on how to calculate compensation of power consumption, value added tax and issue invoices to customers.
