The climate of Vietnam is a fascinating thing. Because of the differences in latitude and the marked variety in topographical relief, the country’s climate tends to vary greatly for each region. However, even though that is the case, there is still one thing that all the regions share to some extent — and that is all of them do receive massive amounts of sun, with some regions getting more than the others.
The sunny quality of Vietnam’s climate is actually a good sign right now because it means that this country can be a place where the solar industry can thrive. And the solar industry will thrive because there is already a growing demand for renewable energy nowadays and solar is arguably the most popular choice for renewable energy.
In fact, a testament to the rise of the solar industry in Vietnam is the fact that there are currently a number of solar manufacturers in the country. Here are some of the most well-known ones that you can check out.
