(MENAFN) According to the official figures released by the Turkish Electricity Transmission Corporation (TEIAS) on Monday, Turkey's daily electricity consumption decreased by 10.13% on Sunday compared to the previous day, amounting to 823,811 megawatts per hours. The hourly power consumption peaked at 34,877 megawatts per hours at 8 p.m. regional time and reached the lowest level of 26,530 megawatts per hours at 8 a.m. regional time.
The total electricity production on Sunday was recorded at 726,506 megawatts per hours, marking a decrease of 10.4 percent compared to Saturday. Out of the total electricity production, 25 percent was generated from imported coal, while wind plants and hydroelectricity power plants contributed 18.1 percent and 14 percent, correspondingly.
The country's electricity exports amounted to 4,769 megawatts per hours on Sunday, while imports totaled 18,555 megawatts per hours. This indicates that Turkey relied more on domestic electricity production and reduced its electricity imports on Sunday.
It is worth mentioning that the decrease in electricity consumption and production can be attributed to various factors, such as weather conditions, lower demand from industries and businesses during the weekend, and decreased economic activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
