According to the representatives of the PR department of the company, individual counters will soon be installed in three villages: Jhinvali, Zahesi and Digomi. The government has provided 20 million GEL for this.
Representatives of the distribution company also say that if the company finds an investor without help from the government, the price of electricity in this region will increase.
