The volume of electricity exports amounts to 13.5% of the total volume of power produced by the Central Asian country.

Tajikistan annually produces 55 million kWh of electricity.

According to Tajik officials, the volume of the surplus electricity of Tajikistan’s energy sector annually reaches more than 6 billion KWh.
