Prishtina, 1 February 2007 – According to officials of Kosovo Energetic Corporation (KEK), around 95 MW of electricity are being imported during the day to cover the increased consumption, while 60 MW are exported during the night to Albania, when the consumption of electricity in Kosovo decreases.
