Falling reservoir water ranges threaten energy provide this yr

HCMC – Many hydropower vegetation within the nation have seen their reservoirs ebbing to extraordinarily low ranges, leaving big impression on hydropower era within the ongoing dry season.

In accordance with State utility Vietnam Electrical energy Group (EVN), the hydropower reservoirs will proceed falling within the coming months as a result of their water ranges are decrease than the common.
