Electricity ImporElectricity Import to Macedonia Doubles Each Yeart to Macedonia Doubles Each Year

Skopje. Electricity import to Macedonia doubles each year. In 2006 it will reach 26% of the country’s entire consumption, the Macedonian Vecer newspaper writes.
The Director of the state company Electric Power Plants in Macedonia Vlatko Cingovski said that this was a very high percentage. That’s why the government should work out a national energy strategy for developing mid- and long-term energy capacities.
“Most electric power units are old. They were built in 1990s and have 20% loss. In the recent years the continuity when constructing new plants was broken up,” Cingovski stated.
In his words what influenced country’s general situation was electricity theft and application of old measuring methods.
