Citizens receive more electricity as water levels have risen

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Citizens will receive more electricity as water levels have risen in the Kurdistan Region’s large lakes of DarbandiKhan and Dukan.

Electricity production in the Region heavily depends on hydroelectric power stations which are stationed in both lakes.

In the past few days, a significant amount of rain fell which resulted in an increase in the surface water levels, according to the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).

The water level of Dukan has risen by two meters, and in Darbandikhan by one and a half meters, it said. The water level of both Darbanikhan and Dukan lakes is now 40% of the total capacity, it added.

Omed Ahmed, the spokesperson for the KRG Ministry of electricity on Tuesday stated that they have the plan to increase the water flow from both lakes which will lead to more electricity production.
