What is the situation with electricity in Ukraine
As of January 24, as a result of attacks by invaders, significant damage occurred at power plants. Therefore, now electricity production at operating power plants cannot fully cover consumption.
Ukrenergo reminded that all oblenergos have been given daily consumption limits.
Exceeding the limits leads to the risk of creating emergency situations in the power system. Therefore, emergency shutdowns are used to prevent them, the department noted.
In addition, power engineers managed to increase the reliability of power output at one of the power plants in the south-east of Ukraine.
