From November 18, 2014, after signing the loan agreement with the EBRD in London, a project was launched to modernize the power grids of the Kyzylorda region together with the EBRD. The total amount of the loan agreement is 5.7 billion KZT.
The implementation of this project will improve the voltage mode in the networks, increase the capacity of the lines, and reduce energy losses. Operating costs will be reduced by 80%, and the life of electric lines will increase to 40 years. Thus, the task of attracting investments for the development of the Kyzylorda electric grid distributive system to ensure uninterrupted power supply is being gradually solved.
