"Electricity exports will resume at 1:00 am Tuesday (2300 GMT Monday) in line with an order of Economy and Energy Minister Traicho Traikov," the minister's office said in a statement on Monday.
Bulgaria is a key electricity exporter in the Balkans, sending to neighbouring Greece, Serbia, Macedonia and Turkey 10.5 billion kilowatt hours last year or on average 1,000 megawatts of electricity per hour.
