At the present, there are in Hanoi city 17 districts and a town (Son Tay) with 405 communes and small towns in rural areas. Recent years, thanks to the care about investment in technical infrastructure as electricity, roads, schools and dispensaries…

the life of the peoples in rural and mountainous areas has been clearly improve ncessary to specify that after fulfilling the Rural Electrification Project in 2008-2012 and Rural Electrification Plan in 2013-2015, Hanoi rural electric system has been improved, more modernly upgraded, guaranteed stable and save electricity supply from national grid for socio-economic development, and 100% households with improved quality and losses reduced from 30% to 8-10%.

However, in Hanoi city beside EVN Hanoi Power Corporation (EVN HPC)– a main electricity supplier, in rural areas there are 87 private electricity retail businesses at low voltage distribution network with low quality and high losses. Besides, the project of synchronize between medium-voltage and low voltage networks (a part of Rural Electrification Project No2 - RE2) implemented not in time also affects low-voltage network effective exploitation; transferring low-voltage network from private businesses to EVN HPC or withdrawing loans for repaying to meet with a lot of difficulties; the meters to be commonly mechanical with a not high accurate…are the main reasons leading to situation of low effective exploitation and high losses of rural electricity network in Hanoi.
