The company “Ukrenergo” spoke about the situation with the supply of electricity at 11:00 am. of November 25, in view of the blackout situation, which was aggravated by the massive shelling by Russian troops on November 23.
“Electricity producers covered more than 70% of the country’s consumption needs. Priority was given to critical infrastructure in all areas: boiler houses, natural gas distribution stations, water channels, sewage treatment facilities, in some areas public electric transport. Nuclear power plants are gaining power. The Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant is supplied with electricity. “Despite the damage suffered after the missile attacks, the thermal and hydroelectric power plants, the thermal power plants are working, part of the ‘green’ generation has been put into operation,” Ukrenergo said.
It is reported that work is continuing to restore electricity to residential consumers.
“The pace of recovery is being slowed down by difficult weather conditions: due to strong wind, rain and sub-zero temperatures at night, damage caused by Russian missiles, icicles and cable gusts are added to distribution networks (oblenergo). Repair crews of “Ukrenergo” together with Oblenergo colleagues are working around the clock, eliminating the damage. However, the lack of electricity in the system remains. At the moment, this is 30% of the total consumption volume,” the message reads.
Currently, the company says, both planned and emergency consumption restriction programs have been implemented in all regions of Ukraine.
Earlier, Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko announced that the capital is still without power. During the day, energy companies plan to connect the power for all consumers alternately – for 3 hours. On November 24, DTEK reported that the lights in Kyiv will remain on until the amount of electricity supplied to the capital increases.
