Bulgaria renewed its electricity exports early on Tuesday after it recently stopped them due to the severe winter conditions in the country and worries of blackouts.

Bulgaria started exporting electricity as of 1 am on Tuesday, the Bulgarian Ministry of Economy, Energy and Tourism has announced.

The Galabovo Thermal Power Plant that was experiencing difficulties is working properly once again.

On February 10, Bulgaria's government discontinued all electricity exports in order to make up for the increased domestic electricity consumption caused by the freezing temperatures over the past couple of weeks.

Bulgaria traditionally exports electricity to Greece and Macedonia; in 2011, electricity exports to Turkey were resumed after an 8-year pause.
