In Long Thanh and Thach Khe town, Mr. Joachim interviewed the beneficial households about the electricity status before and after the project.
Ms. Pham Thi Hoi, a resident of Lo Gom village expressed: “Before having the ‘electric tank’ (transformer substation), the whole village shared the cost to pull a electricity from the main road, with the length of 3km to village gate then splited to use. Only a few bulbs for the children to use, though they are unstable. It’s the worst during flooding season, the whole village had power outage for 1-2 weeks, which is normal because the electrical power often being broken due to unsatisfied technical specification. Since the tank appeared, we use electricity comfortably with less cost.
Mr. Joachim Scrempp highly evaluated the efficiency brought by the project, as well as to note the difficulties that Phu Yen PC is facing.
