In addition, EVN increased the electric power purchased from China by 100 million kWh per month.
In the past four months the company also brought into operation 10 transmission lines and 500/220 kV transformers.
These sources helped EVN meet demand for power consumption and avoid power cuts across the country in April and in May.
In May, the national grid will supply over 300 million kWh of electricity per day, EVN said.
