The construction of the first hybrid power plant in Azerbaijan will be completed in September, official Ramiz Rzayev told journalists on Thursday.

He said the plant is being constructed in Gobustan, where wind farms, solar modules and installation for the production of electricity from biomass will operate. Production capacity will be 5.5 megawatts of power.

"The landfill will be mainly used for pilot projects," Rzayev said.

Azerbaijan has already carried out pilot projects on wind energy.
