The Sulak River and its tributaries constitute an extremely important hydropower resource of the Dagestan ASSR. The cascade of 20 hydroelectric plants on this river, which will have a total capacity of 3 million kW and an output of 10 billion kW-h (the Gergegil'sk, Chiryurtsk Nos. 1 and 2. Chirkeisk, and other projected plants), provides an excellent example of the effective utilization of a mountain river for the production of power.
