(HBO) – Electricity demand often surges in the hot season, posing the risk of grid overload. To ensure stable power supply in the hot season, the Hoa Binh Power Company (PC Hoa Binh) has taken various measures, including encouraging efficient electricity use.

Data from PC Hoa Binh show that although the strong heat wave in early May lasted for only three days, the electricity consumption in Hoa Binh province increased sharply. Notably, the power consumption provincewide at 9:30pm on May 6 reached over 245.7 MW, up 19.9% from the same point of time on May 4.

The northern region of Vietnam is forecast to experience peak heat waves from May to July, and power consumption in Hoa Binh also is predicted to continue soaring. Therefore, power supply is likely to encounter many difficulties, leading to the need for efficient energy use during summer months.

Facing that fact, PC Hoa Binh has devised different plans to minimise power cuts and guarantee stable supply.

Tran Thi Ut, head of the company’s marketing division, said one of important measures for ensuring stable power supply in the hot season is calling for efficient energy use from customers.

Over the past months, the firm has stepped up communications and guidance for customers on how to use electricity efficiently, especially via its website and Facebook and Zalo fanpages. It has also held working sessions with big customers engaging in industrial production to persuade them to save electricity on the days with extreme heat and during peak hours, particularly in summer months.

This will not only help customers avoid high power bills but also contribute to the safe and stable power supply for economic and daily activities, especially in the hot season of 2023, she added./.
