New generating capacities with a total volume of 610 MW will emerge in the Republic of Adygea, in the Rostov, the Krasnodar and the Stavropol regions.
“In the next four years we will build 610 MW of wind-driven electric power stations in power-hungry regions rich in wind potential. Mostly it concerns the country’s south”, - said Head of Integrated Thermal Power Company (OTEK), Anna Naimushina.
