Power supply is a leading important factor of the technical infrastructure and utilities of the industrial zone as well as the determining factor of success or failure in attracting investment in industrial zone. Although recognizing the important of power supply, most industrial zone investors cannot control it. The power supply to the Investors still depends entirely on the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) and local Power Companies.

In order to solve the problem of power supply for investors in industrial zone, right from the first time of entering the field of industrial zone development, IDICO determined to apply for investment in building a power distribution station to proactively supply electricity to Investors in the Industrial Zone. It can be said that IDICO is one of the few investor that can distribute electricity directly to investors in Nhon Trach 1 and Nhon Trach 5 Industrial Zones, Dong Nai province. Recently, IDICO has been approved by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Vietnam Electricity Corporation and the competent authority of Long An province to invest in the construction of 110/22kV transformer station in IDICO Huu Thanh Industrial Zone, Long An province.
In addition, in order to be more proactive in supplying electricity to investors and take advantage of the green energy development mechanism and available advantages from 10 operating industrial zones, along with industrial zones being researched and developed nationwide with an expected area of about 4,500 ha by 2025, and especially the advantage of being approved to distribute electricity to investors directly, IDICO's General Meeting of Shareholders has determined that the development of rooftop solar energy in industrial zones is one of the three strategic development orientations of IDICO in the next time.
Rooftop solar power is expected to be a perfect piece for the IDICO eco-industrial parks, including technical infrastructure system, industrial park utilities, social infrastructure system, residential areas, housing areas for experts and workers around the industrial zone; these above advantages make investors feel secure to invest, help workers and employees feel secure to work in industrial zones, and creating a sustainable ecosystem in IDICO industrial zones.
