In July 2016, Leader Energy acquired a 70% interest in Leader Nam Tien Hydropower Joint Stock Company which owns a portfolio of five run-of-river hydropower stations in Lao Cai Province, Vietnam. The total capacity of the portfolio is 49.5MW. Leader Energy supervises all of the operations & maintenance on a daily basis. The project capacities range from 4.5MW up to 18MW. Our hydro portfolio consists entirely of low intensity, run-of-river projects that produce zero air emissions and no adverse impact to local populations. The projects sell power under long-term PPAs with the State utility of Vietnam, EVN, under the “avoided cost tariff” program.
