Harsh Weather Forces Bulgaria To Halt Electricity Exports

Bulgaria halted electricity exports early Friday morning amid a domestic supply crunch caused by the ongoing cold wave, the country's economy and energy ministry said.

Electricity exports will be suspended as of 1 a.m. local time on Friday due to an average shortage of around 400 megawatts an hour, the ministry said in a statement on Thursday evening.

All available power reserves have been activated, including reserves at hydro power stations, the ministry said.

Bulgaria exports electricity to all its neighbours, Greece included.
