In March 2022, Georgian power plants generated 1,077 mln. kWh of electricity (Figure 1). This represents a 63% increase in total generation, compared to the previous year (in March 2021, the total generation was 661 mln. kWh).
In February 2022, Georgian power plants generated 890 mln. kWh of electricity (Figure 1). This represents a 29% increase in total generation, compared to the previous year (in February 2021, the total generation was 692 mln. kWh). The increase in generation on a yearly basis comes from the increase of 34% and 24% in thermal and hydropower generation, respectively, more than offsetting the 7% decline in wind power generation.
Today is 24 March, and it’s been snowing heavily in Tsavkisi for the past few days. My yard and street are covered by about a full meter of snow. Cars are stuck on the snow-covered streets and our small community is physically cut off from the rest of the world. Locals can’t remember such a snowstorm, especially in March.
