January 14, Fineko/abc.az. Azerbaijan is to construct the largest solar and wind power plants in the region.

ABC.AZ reports that President Ilham Aliyev stated about that at yesterday’s meeting dedicated to the results of 2019.

The head of state noted that two projects and an executive agreement were signed in Baku with two large investors a few days ago.

This is a very important step in creating renewable energy: "Two large power plants (wind and solar ones) are to be built. The significance of this event is that finances will be made by investors. In other words, this is the result of trust placed in us and support for the long-term development of Azerbaijan. The total capacity of the two stations will be 440 MW.

These will be the largest solar and wind power plants in the region. We are creating renewable energy ourselves, and a 50 MW power station has been built. In addition, design work has been completed on the construction of an 84 MW plant."
