Georgia has begun exporting electricity to Turkey and Russia, announces the Electricity System Commercial Operator (ESCO) of Georgia.
Export started in May this year and so far Georgia exported 2.78 million kWh hour to Turkey and 2.61 kWh hour to Russia.
ESCO explained that the increased amount of electricity generated at Georgia’s hydro power plants made it possible to start exporting to Turkey and Russia.
This year Georgia plans to export 700 million kWh hour which will be four times less than imports.
The import of electricity in Georgia will not be needed only in May-July.
