Taraz. December 1. KazTAG - A wind farm worth $1.9 billion with the accumulation of electricity is going to be built in the Zhambyl region, reports the press service of Samruk-Kazyna.
“The power plant worth $1.9 billion with a capacity of 1 GW will be launched in 2026-27 in the Zhambyl region. It will increase the total capacity of renewable energy facilities in our country by 1.5 times. For the first time in Kazakhstan, a renewable energy station will be supplemented with an electricity storage system, which will smooth out the natural fluctuations of renewable generation,” the report says.
