The project was submitted for approval to regional Governor Mikhail Yurevich, who tasked municipal governments to start looking for investors. The proposed small hydropower plants are projected to annually produce up to 50 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electric power, which is to improve power supplies to the region’s remote areas.
