Binh Phuoc is one of 20 localities with high levels of heat radiation and hours of sunshine, favorable for solar energy development.

The Gia Lai provincial authorities have approved the Krong Pa solar power project registered by Gia Lai Electricity JSC. With the total investment capital of VND1.428 trillion, the 49 MW plant would use 76 hectares of land and is expected to become operational by the second quarter of 2019.

The Ba Ria – Vung Tau People’s Committee has sent a dispatch to the Energy Directorate General, asking to examine and submit to the PM the solar power project in Chau Duc IZ. If approved, the 100 MW plant would be added to the national electricity development program.

In September 2017, SY Group from South Korea signed an MOU with the Bac Lieu investment department on cooperation to develop a solar power plant and aquaculture worth $450 million.

According to SY’s president Hong Young Don, the project would be implemented in two stages. In the first stage, the plant would have the capacity of 50 MW.
