Energy workers returned electricity to six regions

According to operational data from the ministry as of March 30, emergency shutdown schedules in all regions where restrictions were applied during the evening peak load were canceled yesterday until the end of the day.

According to the report, the cause of these outages was network restrictions and insufficient local generation due to damage to power plants.

As of March 30, hourly electricity restrictions apply only in the Kharkov region for 120 thousand subscribers. The reason is serious damage to the equipment of NEC Ukrenergo and, as a consequence, the inability to transmit the required amount of electricity, reports the Ministry of Energy.

So far there is no shortage of electricity in the energy system. The energy system operates in a balanced manner.
