Light supply mode: power engineers told what to expect for Ukrainians on March 19

The energy system of Ukraine is stable, and power plants produce enough electricity to cover consumption. In this regard, oblenergos report that there is no need to limit the supply of electricity to Ukrainians. However, they emphasize there: in the event of an overload of networks, electricity can be turned off – according to the schedules.

“Currently, there are no limits from NPC Ukrenergo. However, when networks are overloaded, power supply restrictions in certain areas are possible. They will occur according to stabilization schedules (hourly outage schedule),” Kyiv Electric Grids said at DTEK.

The same message was published by the energy industry in other regions. In particular:

  • Kyiv region;
  • Odessa;
  • Dnepropetrovsk.

They do not plan to turn off the electricity, and, in particular, in the Poltava region. At the same time, they urged residents of the region to use household appliances, lighting and electric heating more economically – “the stable operation of power grids depends on this.”

“There are no planned disconnections from the network yet,” Vinnitsaoblenergo reported. Power engineers of other regions made the same statement. In particular:

  • Volyn;
  • Kirovograd;
  • Transcarpathian.

Keep generators and power banks ready

At the same time, Alexander Kharchenko, director of the Energy Research Center, advises Ukrainians to keep generators and power banks on standby. After all, until the network is fully restored and generation, the threat of emergency power outages will persist.

“The risk of accidents will remain until we restore our high-voltage lines and generating capacities. The lines are in a state of “repaired on the knee”, since it has not yet been possible to take the equipment to the factory, restore it overhaul or massively replace it with a new one,” Kharchenko explained .

Now, according to him, the energy supply in Ukraine is not as reliable as it was before the damage. “I would highly recommend maintaining that mode of readiness for any surprises for at least a few more months. Because nothing can be guaranteed,” the expert concluded.

As GLOBAL HAPPENINGS reported, at the same time, the electricity tariff in Ukraine could be approximately doubled: from UAH 1.44 per kWh (with consumption up to 250 kWh per month) to UAH 2.5 per kWh. Such a step, they assure, is necessary for carrying out repair work.
