A memorandum is being drafted at the Ministry of Energy of Georgia which will consider building the first solar electric station in Sagarejo called Manavi. The $200 million USD project will be carried out by a Georgian company with Azerbaijani investments and in 8-9 months the electric station will start operating.

Due to its geographical location, effective solar emanation is high in Georgia. In most regions the annual sunshine reaches 250-280 days which is around 1,900-2,200 hours a year. It would be advisable to use the solar transformers in the high mountainous and sparsely inhabited regions. Although it costs a lot to build the solar electric station, the use of solar energy will become popular as the organic resources are exhausted.
