Tajikistan Boosts Electricity Generation In 8M2022

(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)

BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 26. Tajikistan's electricity generation slightly increased from January through August 2022, Trend reports citing asiaplustj.info.

The volume of Tajikistan's electricity generation in 8 months of this year amounted to over 14.5 billion kWh, which is an increase of 3 percent over the same period in 2021.

During the reporting period, electricity exports from Tajikistan also increased by 13.9 percent compared to the corresponding period of last year - up to $83 million.

As reported, Tajikistan supplies electricity to Afghanistan and Uzbekistan. Afghanistan buys electricity from Tajikistan at a price of 4.67 cents per 1 kWh, and Uzbekistan - 2 cents.

The low price of electricity for Uzbekistan is due to the fact that Tajikistan, in turn, imports Uzbek natural gas at a reduced price.
