Hydro resources are the most significant natural wealth of Ajara. Hydro power potential of the region is quite strong and within-year inflow distribution of rivers is very diverse (single peaked, double peaked, and with almost equal hydrographs). The index of Ajara exceeds 244 kilowatts per hour. In terms of power engineering, rivers Tchorokhi, Acharistskali, Chirukhistskali, and Kintrishi are very strong. The most abundant river among them is Chorokhi.
There are 12 hydro power plants projects in Ajara operating under the license of the Georgian National Commission on Energy Regulation. Their overall capacity is 325.5 thousand kilowatts/hour and annual energy generation is 1 102.5 million kilowatts/hour
