Alternative sources to generate electricity have made substantial gains this year within the national electricity system. A report from the National Dispatch Center (CND) says that until August the wind and sun-based generation increased by 20.4% and 41%, respectively.

The report indicates that in the first 8 months of the year the wind power plants contributed 552, 400 kilowatt-hours (kWh) to the electrical system, while solar plants contributed 203,03 kWh. 

The statistics of the Comptroller General's Office that are based on the CND report do not include the generation of energy based on natural gas, a plant that contributed 7,603 kwh on Friday, October 25.
