First wind power to be built in Georgia

Georgian Energy Ministry will construct wind farms in Gori (Shida Kartli region, eastern Georgia) jointly with the country’s Energy Development Fund.


The plants will be built as part of the plans for the development of alternative energy sources in Georgia.

Initially, the project for the construction of the first wind farm with the installed capacity of 20 megawatt in the country will be implemented. Its capacity can increase to 300 megawatt in the future.

The wind farm will be constructed by using public funds. The project’s investment value is $30 million.

It is planned to start the construction in 2015. The preliminary feasibility study of the project has already been worked out.
