According to the schedule, wind power plant is expected to be commissioned in December 2019.

This project was included by the Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan in the list of energy producing organizations using renewable energy sources.

Presently, the share of wind and solar energy in Kazakhstan’s general energy balance is 1 percent. At the same time, 12 percent of the total electricity in Kazakhstan is generated from water energy. Nevertheless, Kazakhstan is ready to increase the share of electricity production through wind power plants and solar panels to 3 percent by 2020.
