Solar power systems will be installed in 87 Georgian villages that are not hooked up to the national electricity grid in mountainous regions of Georgia.

The government of Georgia will provide 178 permanent resident families of Mtskheta-Mtianeti, Shida Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Racha-Lechkhum –Kvemo Svaneti, Kakheti and Imereti with the solar panels.

Each solar panel will have a 1,500W capacity that is sufficient for a household to use several appliances at the same time.

The USAID/Energy Program will provide the Regional Development and Infrastructure Ministry of Georgia with technical support.

UGT, a leading service and hardware provider on the Georgian IT market, will ensure the supply and installation work and guarantee servicing of the panels.

The installation process will be launched in September and continue until the end of January 2020.
