The DRCís hydroelectric plants produce virtually all of the energy the country needs. The major hydroelectric plant is on the lower Congo River at Inga (opened in 1972). Other generating plants have been built in the southern DRC to serve mining operations. The plant at Inga alone could produce 15 times the amount of electricity needed by the DRC. Despite this, the DRC has not pursued the export of energy. The small percentage of energy not produced by hydroelectric plants comes from thermal plants.
