Georgia informed the Armenian delegation that it was ready to begin buying electricity from Armenia–at a rate of $0.03 per kilowatt. The primary details were talked about and time frame of two weeks was set for the initial delivery of electricity.
Georgia is currently suffering from a serious shortage of power. In Tbilisi a daily allotment of three hours of electricity is available to residents–while rural areas receive less.
