DUSHANBE, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Tajikistan’s national power company has restricted electricity supplies to residential homes in regions to four hours per day.
Barqi Tojik said the falling of temperature affected power volumes generated by the country's hydropower plant.
“Cold snap and slower deglaciation in the republic’s mountains affected the Panj river’s flow near the Nurek water reservoir, reducing it from 230 cubic meters per second to 130 cubic meters per second year-on-year. This decreased the generated current,” the company said.
Weather forecasters say such weather may last five-seven days as a minimum.
Not only rural residents felt blackouts. Several districts of the Tajik capital, Dushanbe, have been reporting power cuts over the past two days. Earlier on Thursday electricity was cut off at the main building of Russian-Tajik Slavonic University, which hosted an international conference on security problems in Central Eurasia.
Tajikistan had felt a strong shortage of electric power after the collapse of the Soviet Union, when a single energy network was destroyed. The country’s authorities pin hope on the construction of several hydropower plants through investments promised by Russia and completion of the Rogun hydropower plant with a designed capacity of 3,600MW and the world’s highest 335-meter dam.
