After exploitation of the hydroelectric power plant, it will be possible to replace one power block of thermal power plant. In addition, in winter period, “Neskra Plant” will increase water resource of “Engur Plant” and consequently, will enable it to generate more electro power.

In order to attract investments for the constructions of new power plants, the Georgian government developed the State program “Renewable Energy 2008”. In the frameworks of the program, 15 new power plants are being built in the regions of Georgia for now. In 2012-2013 year, construction of additional 20 hydroelectric power plants will be started.
