The Pumped – Storage Hydro Power Plant Avče

 

A construction of a pumped – storage hydro power plant, which at times of low electric energy prices (at night, at weekends) pumps the water into the accumulation basin, and at times of high electric energy prices (the peak periods on weekdays) the thus accumulated water is used for the production of electric energy.
