PPC sees increase in hydroelectric power production

Public Power Corporation (PPC) on Wednesday said it expected an increase in hydroelectric power production soon because of recent high rainfall combined with the melting of snow and the very high –for the season- water reserves in the country.

PPC said water reserves operated by PPC amounted to 2,835 Gwh, up 22 pct compared with the average levels of the 2015-2017 period (around 2,316 Gwh). The electricity utility said it would cooperate with ADMIE, the independent electricity energy transmission operator, in order to implement a necessary increase in hydroelectric production
