HA NOI (VNS) — The Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN) has decided to delay the cutoff of electricity until May 29 due to a heat wave in Ha Noi.
Earlier this month, the EVN had announced the schedule of power cutoffs in many districts to maintain services as regulated.
The corporation has urged local people to use electricity economically, especially at peak hours.
According to the corporation, due to hot weather, power consumption has been increasing dramatically in May as compared to other months of the year.
On May 20, power consumption exceeded 101 per cent as compared to last year's day of highest consumption.
A shortage in power supply has been forecast for this summer. The corporation has asked their companies to prepare plans and complete all upgrade and repair works to meet the power demand of the city's people during this summer. — VNS
