There’s no plan to clear up the electric corridor
Le Nhu Y says that many electric devices in his house have been broken
The power grid often suffers when it rains because the electricity lines and pylons are covered in tree branches and there’s no plan to clear up the electric corridor.
“When it looked like we were going to lose power, I immediately shut off the circuit breaker but I wasn’t fast enough,” he said. “Many devices have broken.”
Nguyen Quang Du, deputy head of the infrastructure economy of Nhu Xuan District, admitted that the power in the area became erratic when it rains. Local government offices also suffer.
Due to difficult mountainous terrain, the electricity line was connected from Nong Cong District which is 30km away. The lines run through Nong Cong, Nhu Thanh districts before reaching Nhu Xuan so if there is any problem in Nong Cong and Nhu Thanh, Nhu Xuan District will suffer.
“There was a plan to build a 110kv station since 2013 but nothing has been done,” he said.
