The consumption is 69 million kWh higher than the highest level recorded in 2017. 

Power use in northern cities and provinces peaked 339 million kWh on June 22, up 9 percent from the highest level last year.

The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) said that consumers cranked up their air-conditioners to escape sweltering prolong heat wave, which threatens safety and stability of the electricity operation system, and lead to grid overload.
