2009 From Internet to Forest
In Feb 2009, genuinely rooted from the desire to share his passion, the website http://solarpower.vn, giving news of solar industry, was created by Pham Nam Phong, a young engineer fond of technologies and innovations. At that point of time in Vietnam, the term “solar power” was still vague and unfamiliar to most people. Building this website, he aimed to make this concept common knowledge and help this wonderful energy source become preferred early. The website quickly attracted people’s interest and made them turn their attention to this new form of energy. Soon realizing this trend, Phong was determined to dive more deeply. He visited many overseas manufacturers of solar panel and appliances to see production lines firsthand in order to get insight into these high technology products. Not long after that, the first contract came to him – 14 off-grid solar power systems 510W for forest ranger stations of Bù Gia Mập National Park. This memorable start, more meaningful when it served a national park, boosted the confidence of this young entrepreneur to engage in this new field. Vu Phong was born in that way. From the very first, Phong had a clear vision of his fledgling company: Vu Phong would run as both a contractor and a manufacturer. So, while the number of projects has gradually increased, the R&D Department was also established to research solar devices branded SolarV.
