Georgia to build the first solar electric station
By Messenger Staff
Thursday, September 26A memorandum is being drafted at the Ministry of Energy of Georgia which will consider building the first solar electric station in Sagarejo called Manavi. The $200 million USD project will be carried out by a Georgian company with Azerbaijani investments and in 8-9 months the electric station will start operating.
Due to its geographical location, effective solar emanation is high in Georgia. In most regions the annual sunshine reaches 250-280 days which is around 1,900-2,200 hours a year. It would be advisable to use the solar transformers in the high mountainous and sparsely inhabited regions. Although it costs a lot to build the solar electric station, the use of solar energy will become popular as the organic resources are exhausted.
