"Now you have to use the reserves of the Nurek reservoir. However, to consume these stocks, we went on restrictions in rural areas," said edgare, adding that the limit will not affect the country's capital Dushanbe and regional centers. "In the regions of the country, electricity will not be supplied at certain hours, and to a certain extent: if it is used carefully, sparingly, that amount is enough for a long time", — said the representative of "Barki Tojik".
