In the next six years it is planned to build wind farms, solar and hydroelectric power plants in the republic of Dagestan with a total investment capacity of 75 billion Russian rubles, the regional Ministry of Energy reports in its official Telegram-channel.
It is noted that the largest share of electricity in the region is generated by 16 hydroelectric power plants. They can meet 60% of the republic's electricity needs. According to the minister Muradov, the construction of the new stations will increase electricity production in the region by 24%, or 1,200m kWh per year, which will improve the quality of resource supply for the consumers.
