The project of a solar station in Surkhandarya starts

The Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Uzbekistan, with the support of the Asian Development Bank, announced the launch of the first pilot project to build a photovoltaic (solar) station in Sherabad district of Surkhandarya region.

This project is part of the Program for the generation of 1 GW of solar energy, developed by the Government of Uzbekistan with the support of the Asian Development Bank.

On 1 February 2020, a tender was launched which will last until July 2020. An international tender is aimed at attracting and selecting a qualified private developer-investor for the implementation of the project in accordance with the new Law on Public-Private Partnership.
