Georgia exports power to Russia

TBILISI, GEORGIA - Georgia has started exporting electricity to Russia along its Kavkasioni power line.

About 2.4 million kilowatt/hours are being transmitted from Georgia to Russia per day, according to Georgia's Electricity System Commercial Operator, the Daily News Bulletin reports.

An increase in the water levels at some of Georgia's hydropower plant dam lakes created excess electricity.

Georgia and Russia have an agreement on electricity exchange. Georgia receives electricity in fall and winter, and returns the supplies in spring and summer.

"As of now, Georgia owes about 60 million kilowatt/hours of electricity to Russia. The spring thaw is early this year, so the electric power is being returned from the middle of February," Georgia's Electricity System Commercial Operator said.
