In June 2020, Georgian power plants generated 999 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 16.6% decrease in total generation, compared to the previous year (June 2019, the total generation was 1,198 mln. kWh). The decrease in generation on a yearly basis comes from the decrease of 16% in hydro power generation and more than seven-fold decrease in thermal power generation offsetting an increase in wind power generation (+21% compared to June 2019), which remains however below 1% of total generation.

On a monthly basis, generation increased by 1.4% (in May 2020, total generation was 986 mln. kWh). The monthly increase in total generation was the result of the increase of 3% in hydro, more than offsetting the decline in wind and thermal power generation (-18% and -100% respectively).

The June consumption of electricity on the local market was 903 mln. kWh (-15% and +1% compared to June 2019, and May 2020, respectively). In June 2020, power generation exceeded consumption by 96 mln. kWh which was 9.6% of total generation (in contrast in June 2019 difference between total generation and consumption resulted in a surplus of 132 mln. kWh which was around 11% of the total generation for the month).
