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.

The PM made the statement at the presentation of the Green Policy – Eco-Friendly Transport on October 22. Bakhtadze claims Georgia will be the first country to replace the vehicle fleet with electric cars in such a short period of time. “This is a very ambitious plan, but this plan will bring a great benefit to Georgia,” the PM said. He added that the green economy is a milestone of the reforms and that a plant for the production of electric vehicles is planned to be launched in Georgia. «We will provide encouragement for launching new leasing schemes in Georgia, according to which a consumer will buy an electric car and pay it off within 5 years with the savings made on the fuel costs. Naturally, it creates very important advantages. This means that we will have quite a large market in Georgia. We are already negotiating with two largest brands to build an electric car plant here,» Bakhtadze said. In addition, Bakhtadze announced that a new subway station will be built from Samgori district to Lilo in Tbilisi. “Today, we are announcing a very important project.
