British group Shire Oak International Ltd. has recently unveiled intentions to develop rooftop solar projects in the southern province of Dong Nai this year.
|Dong Nai province committed to offer the best conditions for Shire Oak International's rooftop solar projects |
The information was shared at a meeting with provincial authorities. Chris Hooun, global strategy director of Shire Oak International Ltd., said that the group wants to invest in the province by cooperating with enterprises, schools, hospitals, agencies, and departments to implement the rooftop solar power project. The group will install all machinery, and once power is available, it will be sold entirely to enterprises and agencies leasing roofs of factories at lower electricity prices than Electricity of Vietnam.
According to Nguyen Thi Hoang, Deputy Chairman of Dong Nai People's Committee, renewable energy attracts and encourages enterprises to invest. As a result, the province would create favourable conditions for Shire Oak International to connect with enterprises in provincial industrial parks, allowing for exchanges and cooperation in rooftop voltage investment. However, the group should pay attention to the regulations on procedures for investing in rooftop voltage to make proper implementation.
Shire Oak International Ltd. was established in 2002, specialising in renewable energy including solar power and wind power. Up to now, the group has implemented over 720 projects in many countries and territories, including Vietnam. As of present, the group has so far completed rooftop solar projects with a total capacity of 12MW in Vietnam. The group aims to expand the capacity to 500MW this year.
