Good result was achieved in April when electricity export amounted around 30MEUR.

Energy company of Mostar Elektroprivreda HZHB which produces electricity especially from HPPs reported at the end of April that it had already accomplished its annual plan for 2013 which resulted with 32MEUR income.

Electricity import was almost a half size lower than in the first four months in 2012. It amounted 16MEUR with reference to 35MEUR in the same period last year.
