Viet Nam’s highland Lam Dong province recently finished its electricity construction in Da Nghit hamlet, Lac Duong district, helping to reinforce the provincial electricity grid.
The project of 4 km transmission power line and a transformer station with a total capacity of 75 kVA, costs VND500 million from the local People’s Committee’s budget.
The project is a gift to the Eighth Party’s Congress in Lam Dong province, said an official, and the operation of the line would provide electricity enough for 157 households of the ethic minority K’ho’ living in the province.
Reportedly, the power line is one of the ten priority electricity projects in 2005, for which the People’s Committee of Lam Dong province advanced VND 10 billion.
These projects are aimed at electrifying many rural areas of Lam Dong province where lots of local ethic minorities are living.
