Georgia, Tbilisi, Jan.16 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
The Georgian Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources has begun to monitor the quality of electricity supplied to the population, the Ministry said.
"Systematic cutoffs in the power grid are common right now because there are currently system repairs underway. Additionally, power failures are often seen during winter and bad weather. Despite this, technical staff has been working around the clock in order to ensure proper operation of the system and power supply to the population in a timely manner", the report says.
"In 2012, compared to previous years, systematic cutoffs in the network significantly decreased. In particular, 1,761 electricity cutoffs were recorded in Tbilisi in 2012, while in 2011 there were 1,965, and in 2010 there were 2,291. As for the regions, in 2012 there were 1,157 such cases on average per month, in 2011 there were 1,357, in 2010 there were 1,439. Compared to the same period last year, according to data for the current month, such cases significantly reduced in both Tbilisi and the regions", the report says.
Along with this, the ministry will pay maximum attention to assure the downward trend in outages continues.
