The first government power plants began to station around 1900 Biggest thermal power station in Lithuania is “Lietuvos elektrine” It’s power with all blocks workings is about 2255 MW. After closing of Ingnalinos atomic power plant, “Lietuvos elektrine” became main power supply in Lithuania. The power plant started working in 1962 and it is still working.
There are 7 power plants in Lithuania that belong to the government and 10 that belong to different companies.
Lithuania had only one atomic power plant “Ignalinos power plant” It first began to work 1987.
