Power outage in Kyiv
The Office of the President reported that throughout Ukraine, in particular, in Kyiv, the lights will be turned off on October 20. Shutdowns are needed to reduce the load on the grid and give power engineers the opportunity to recover.
Consequently, DTEK Kyiv Grids are forced to apply the power supply cutoff schedule. Consumer addresses were divided into three queues. First, the power supply was limited in part of the 3rd stage (16:00 – 20:00). True, they warned that, if necessary, they could turn off the next queue.
- 1 queue – from 8:00 to 12:00 and from 20:00 to 24:00
