Da Nang City Targets One Million Roof Top Solar Power Homes

Oct 2020

The Da Nang Department of Industry and Trade has launched a pilot project for the development of a million roof-top solar power homes. This project, jointly developed with the center for Green Innovation Development (Green ID), aims to encourage solar power usage in the city and reduce carbon emissions.

In 2020, the first 45 households in the city are set to join the project with capacities from 1.8 kWp to 3 kWp. Households with under 3 kWp solar power systems will each receive VND 2 million (USD 87) for each kWp from the project.

According to the city’s power corporation, more than 1,000 roof-top solar power projects have been built in Da Nang City. More projects with a total capacity of 5,000 kWp would be built by the end of 2020.

Da Nang has remarkable renewable energy potential, with 2,000 hours of sunlight per year and an estimated 1,140 MW of solar power. The city also plans to build a 4.4 MW solar farm on the closed Khanh Son Landfill to supply 7.7 million kWh and reduce 5,000 tonnes of carbon emissions each year.
