The price of Georgian electricity is now almost the same as it is in European countries, despite the fact that the average salary in Europe is almost 10 times higher than in Georgia. For working Georgians the price is extremely expensive but for those who are unemployed or living on a pension, the costs are excessive. Meanwhile electricity prices in neighboring countries are relatively cheap. In Armenia it is sold for 3 cents per unit, Azerbaijan 5 cents and Russia 7 cents. Comparatively in Georgia the consumer pays around 10 cents. Georgian officials are trying to sell country’s electricity abroad in serious quantities, to exploit its export potential. However in reality the country make more profit through selling it in the local market.
