President Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva attended the inauguration of several social facilities, including an electric substation, a school, a hospital, a park in Absheron district and the capital Baku on February 1, Azertag has reported.
President Aliyev attended the opening of the renovated 220/110/10 kV and newly built 110/35/10 kV substation in Baku’s Khirdalan district.

A power transmission line has been laid from the South Power Plant in Shirvan city to Khirdalan substation, which provides 60 percent of the electricity in Baku.
