A number of power projects will be launched in Quang Tri between 2019 and 2025.

As many as 58 wind power projects will go into operation by June.

Apart from 10 existing solar power projects, the province will have a total capacity of about 500 MW in the near future.

By 2025, 5,000 MW of electricity will help contribute 5 trillion VND (217.3 million USD) to the local State budget.

In order to lure more capital into the energy field, the province has built e-government and offered consultancy across taxation, insurance, land and environment to enterprises.
