According to the provisions of Circular 16, “This Circular applies to organizations and individuals participating in developing solar power projects in Vietnam and other related organizations and individuals.” This means that participating in the development of solar power systems is completely feasible. In particular, investors are encouraged to invest in building solar power systems.

Benefits and Support Policies when applying for permission to install solar power

Incentives on investment capital and taxes

According to Decision No. 11/2017 of the Prime Minister, organizations and individuals participating in the development of solar power projects can legally mobilize capital from domestic and foreign organizations and individuals to invest in implementing solar power projects. solar power projects according to the provisions of law. This helps investors easily mobilize capital from different funding sources such as banks to invest in developing solar power systems.

In addition, solar power projects are also exempt from import taxes on goods that create fixed assets.

Preferential electricity prices

Grid-connected solar power projects enjoy preferential electricity prices. EVN commits to purchase all electricity output from these projects at the purchase price specified in current legal documents, and this price is calculated according to current foreign exchange rates. This helps reduce investment payback time and creates more favorable conditions for investing in installing solar power systems.

Procedure for applying for permission to install solar power

Register for electrical connection

For solar power projects with a capacity of less than 01 MW, investors need to register for electricity connection with the Provincial/City Electricity Company. During this process, important information that should be provided includes:

  • Expected capacity of the system.
  • Technical specifications of solar panels.
  • AC power conversion parameters.

Remember that Vietnam Electricity Corporation (EVN) often supports free installation of 2-way meters . This allows you to monitor the amount of electricity produced from the solar power system and can sell excess electricity back to EVN.

If you are considering installing a solar power system for an individual building or house, you need to ensure that you have a repair and renovation license and comply with construction safety standards. Solar power systems not only bring benefits in terms of energy costs but also ensure safety for the project and the surrounding environment.

Place to license solar power installation

Applying for permission to install a solar power system is an important step to ensure the legality and safety of the project. Below is the process and where you need to apply for a license to install a solar power system:

Vietnam Electricity Corporation and its member units

The investor can agree and sign a power purchase contract with Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) or authorized member units. This ensures that the production and consumption of electricity from the solar power system takes place according to regulations and prescribed electricity prices.

Ministry of Industry and Trade

After reaching agreement with EVN, the investor needs to send a signed copy of the Power Purchase Agreement to the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The time to submit this contract is no later than 30 days from the date of signing for grid connection projects. This step helps ensure electricity production and consumption are accurately monitored and managed.

Steps to install a solar power system

Applying for a license to install a solar power system is an important part of ensuring the legality and safety of the project. Below is the specific process to apply for a license to install a solar power system:

Additional related documents

To apply for a license, the investor needs to provide full business registration license, construction license and certificate of fire prevention and fighting eligibility (if any).

Check & Evaluate safety conditions

Investors need to ensure that the solar power system meets the prescribed safety conditions. This ensures the installation does not affect the landscape and surrounding environment.

Register the electricity system with EVN

For grid-connected solar power systems , investors need to register with EVN to be inspected, approved and provided with two-way meters .

According to current regulations, solar power projects with a capacity greater than or equal to 01 MW need to apply for investment permission according to the legal process on project investment. This includes approval of land use planning, and full compliance with regulations on construction safety, environmental protection and other technical conditions.

Project capacity less than 01MW

Even though the project has a capacity of less than 01MW, compliance with regulations on construction safety, environmental protection and other technical regulations is still an important step.

This helps ensure that installing a solar power system not only meets energy needs but also contributes to environmental protection and safety for everyone.
