Bishkek, Oct. 22, 2018. / Kabar /. In January-September 2018, the export of electricity to Uzbekistan amounted to 754 million kWh at a price of 2-2.4 cents in the amount of 16.2 million US dollars, Deputy Chairman of the State Committee for Industry, Energy and Subsoil Use of the Kyrgyz Republic Aytmamat Kadyrbayev told at the meeting of the Republican headquarters for the preparation of sectors of the economy and population for the autumn-winter period. According to him, compared with 2017, exports decreased by 450 million kWh. This is due to the fact that in 2017 the flow of water into the Toktogul reservoir was greater. “Electric Power Stations OJSC” provided the generation of the volumes of electricity necessary for domestic consumption. Thus, electricity generation in January-September 2018 amounted to 10.8 billion kWh, or 0.6% more than in January-September 2017,” said Kadyrbayev.
