Uzbekistan to spend USD700 million on region's first solar plants

24 August 2015

Uzbekistan launched projects worth USD700 million for three solar power plants that will pioneer use of the technology in Central Asia, state power utility Uzbekenergo said on Monday.

A producer of crude oil and natural gas, Uzbekistan relies on thermal plants for up to 90 percent of its electricity.

The 300 megawatts of clean energy from the solar plants, which are due for completion by 2020, will make up a tiny fraction of the country's total energy capacity of around 10 giga.
