Tajik Authorities To Abolish The Limitations On Power Consumption

Friday, January 6, 2017 - 17:27

The Tajik authorities intend to completely remove the existing limitations on the consumption of electricity. Thus, on January 4, the daily supply of electricity was increased by five hours: that is, from 5 am to 22 pm. According to the National Energy Holding
“Barki Tojik,” plans are afoot to completely abolish all the energy limits in the future.


Worth recalling, the official limit on the consumption of electricity was introduced in Tajikistan on November 1, 2016. However, after the commissioning of the new combined heat and power “Dushanbe-2,” the schedule of electricity supply to residential houses was extended. Later, the power company “Barki Tojik” announced a further reduction of the limitation on the supply of electricity, which resulted in a further three-hour increase a day.


Currently, the population receives electricity on the following schedule: from 5:00 to 11:00 in the morning, and from 4:00 to 10:00 in the evening – that is, 12 hours a day.


The management of “Barki Tojik” asked the people of the country to be careful regarding the use of electricity, and to pay for it on time.


In December 2016, the World Bank published a study titled “Listening to Tajikistan.” According to it, 2016 resulted in a deterioration of the electricity and water supply services in Tajikistan. For example, water shortages increased by 10 percent, and electricity shortages by about a third. According to experts, this may be caused by the significant physical deterioration of the republic's hydro-power facilities. In addition, a role is played by the exports of electricity to South Asia and Afghanistan.


Experts believe that the shortage of electricity in Tajikistan can be solved through construction of small and medium-sized hydro-power plants. However, so far there have been built not enough power plants to solve the problem of power shortage in the country.
