Better electrical power in Kazakhstan


KAZAKHSTAN (WKOW) -- Electricity may be more accessible in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyszstan. The Central Asian nations concluded a landmark electricity trade deal. It sets a crucial precedent that could improve coordination of power resources across the region.

Kazakhstan's government-owned electricity sales coordinator KOREM released a statement on Wednesday. It said, they oversaw deals to sell 37 million kilowatt hours of electricity from Kyrgyzstan's state-run energy producer this month directly to Kazakh energy suppliers.

The trade of electricity among countries in the region is usually carried out as part of cumbersome government-level agreements.

The former Soviet Central Asian nations that emerged as independent nations in 1991 have struggled in the past two decades to agree on sharing natural resources.
