Uzbekistan has resumed power supply to Tajikistan, a source in the Barq-i Tojik [Tajik Electricity] open joint-stock holding company has told Asia-Plus.

The supply of electricity from Uzbekistan started on the first day of the spring, 1 March.

According to information from the source, the country got 8.2m kWh of electricity from Uzbekistan over the past 24 hours. Yesterday the country got 17.6m kWh of power in total, 9.4m kWh of which was from Turkmenistan and the rest from Uzbekistan.

At the same time, power supplies from Kyrgyzstan were stopped on 1 March. Kyrgyzstan had lately supplied 200,000 kWh of power a day to Tajikistan.

We should recall that Uzbekistan stopped power supplies to Tajikistan on 25 February due to technical problems at thermal power stations that are the main producers of electricity in that country.
