MINSK, 23 April (BelTA) - Since the connection of the first power unit to the unified power grid, the Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant (BelNPP) has generated 28.5 billion kWh of electricity, which helped replace more than 7.7 billion cubic meters of natural gas, Belarusian Energy Minister Viktor Karankevich said as he met with the personnel of the Novoyelnya pipe insulation section of Grodnogazstroizolyatsiya, BelTA learned from the press service of the Energy Ministry.

In Q1 2024 the volume of electricity consumption by households for these needs increased by 1.4 times compared to the same period of 2023.
