Chapter II

ELECTRICITY SALE PRICE ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM

Article 3. Principles of determination of basic input parameters

The electricity sale price shall be computed and examined every month, taking into account fluctuations of basic input parameters against those used for determining the current electricity sale price, according to the following principles:

1. The computing exchange rate is the USD exchange rate calculated on an average daily basis from the date of the last electricity sale price adjustment to the 15th day of the computing month (or the preceeding working day if the 15th day falls on a week-end or holiday), which is the USD selling rate at the closing hour of the headquarters of the Joint-Stock Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam.

2. The computing fuel price is the daily average fuel price calculated from the date of the last electricity sale price adjustment to the 15th day of the computing month (or the preceeding working day if the 15th day falls on a week-end or holiday), with the coal price being the domestic coal price for electricity generation at the location of coal delivery publicized by Vietnam National Coal, Mineral Industries Holding Corporation Limited; the gas price for the Ca Mau power plant calculated by PetroVietnam Gas Corporation according to international oil prices: the prices of gas from other sources (Nam Con Son and Cuu Long) prescribed by the Prime Minister at the time of computing electricity sale prices under contracts; and the oil price determined according to the oil retail prices in the domestic market, publicized by Vietnam National Petroleum Corporation.

3. The generated electricity output structure of previous months counting from the last adjustment with the total output from the 15th day to the end of the month projected for computing.

Article 4. Sequence of electricity sale price adjustment

1. The average electricity sale price shall be computed and examined when basic input parameters fluctuate as compared to those used for computing the current electricity sale price according to the following formulas:

Of which:

G: The computed average electricity sale price;

GHH: The current average electricity sale price;

GSL,: The generated-electricity price difference due to fluctuation of the generated electricity output compared to the planned electricity output already approved;

GTG: The generated-electricity price difference due to fluctuation of the USD exchange rate compared to the exchange rate used for computing the current average electricity sale price:

 GNL : The generated-electricity price difference due to fluctuation of the fuel price compared to the fuel price used for computing the current average electricity sale price:

G: The average electricity sale price difference due to fluctuation of basic input parameters;

GCTH. The price components calculated from the electricity production and business costs not yet fully accounted into the current electricity sale price, which are determined under regulations of competent bodies and Clause 4 of this Article:

GBO: The electricity sale price components subtracted from the electricity sale price and put into the electricity price valorization fund (+) or subtracted from the electricity price valorization fund (-) under the joint guidance of the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Industry and Trade;

GTP: The complete average electricity sale price difference.

The methods of examining and computing the electricity sale price adjustment according to basic input parameters are prescribed in the appendix to this Circular (not printed herein).

2. Before the 20th day every month, based on the real basic input parameters determined under Article 3 of this Circular. Electricity of Vietnam shall examine and calculate the average electricity sale price difference due to fluctuation of basic input parameters (a G).

3. If the average electricity sale price difference due to fluctuation of basic input parameters is equal to. or higher than 5% as compared to the current electricity sale price (G e"5% GHH), the average electricity sale price shall be adjusted as follows:

a/ To adjust the average electricity sale price at the level of 5%

Electricity of Vietnam shall report the electricity sale price adjustment plan to the Ministry of Industry and Trade for approval. If the latter gives no comments, alter 5 days from the date of receiving the electricity price adjustment computing dossier. Electricity of Vietnam may increase the average electricity sale price 5% over the current electricity sale price;

b/ To adjust the average electricity sale price with an increase of over 5%

Electricity of Vietnam shall report the electricity price plan to the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Finance for appraisal. Within 10 days after receiving the complete electricity price adjustment dossier of Electricity of Vietnam, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Finance shall organize an appraisal thereof for the Ministry of Industry and Trade to submit it to the Prime Minister for consideration and approval.

If the Prime Minister has no reply within 15 working days after the Ministry of Industry and Trade submits the electricity price adjustment plan, Electricity of Vietnam may adjust the average electricity sale price at the level of 57c.

4. If the average electricity sale price difference due to fluctuation of basic input parameters is smaller than 5%- as compared to the current electricity sale price (G < 5%="">HH), Electricity of Vietnam shall calculate the electricity production and business costs not yet fully accounted into the electricity sale price for allocation to the average electricity sale price in order to increase the average electricity sale price by 5% at most, and adjust the electricity sale price according Point a. Clause 3 of this Article.

If it is necessary to increase the average electricity sale price by more than 5%. Electricity of Vietnam shall adjust the electricity sale price under Point b. Clause 3 of this Article.
