Of the amount, 72 billion VND has been used to build 34 works and upgrade 49 others in 24 remote and border communes across the province, including transformer stations, cable grids and power metres, said Thuan.
Over the past year, the company has invested in installing more than 600 kilometres of cables and 161 transformer stations, thus connecting 10,500 households from 43 communes across the province to the national power grid.
The rate of households currently using electricity in the province is 94 percent./.
