The Ministry of Industry and Trade has issued a circular extending the deadline for registration of buying power at preferential price until May 15.
This aims to create favorable conditions for the poor and low-income households, consuming less than 50 kWh a month, to benefit from the Government’s preferential policy.
Yesterday, Vietnam Electricity (EVN), the country’s largest power company asked five power corporations around the country to implement the circular guidelines with immediate effect.
According to EVN reports, as of March 31 about three million customers registered for the preferential price. This figure is far less than the EVN statistics show.
Registration for buying electricity at preferential price will be at authorized centers of the power companies. Customers can simply fill in a registration form and present their electricity bills or trade contracts.
