2018 saw only two large-scale solar projects commissioned in Vietnam: Krong Pa - 49 MW and Duc Hue 1 - 35 MW.
Due to the current FiT Commercial Operation Date we expect a rush of construction and commissioning to happen for solar developments in Vietnam with 40 projects of total 2GW capacity coming to life. That is roughly $2 billions USD spent on building solar farms in just 2 years. Investors and developers will be eagerly waiting for the policy update after FiT.

The top 5 projects under constructions in Vietnam will all be larger than the current largest solar power plant in Southeast Asia (132 MW in Philippines).
