About the fact that with the arrival of high summer temperatures, domestic the energy system will be in a very difficult situation, and therefore a return to traditional “rolling” blackouts is likely, for the sake of some stabilization of this infrastructure, writes NBN, referring to the statement of the Deputy Head of the Ministry of Energy Svetlana Grinchuk, sounded on the air of the telethon on the YouTube channel “TSN”.

According to Grinchuk, the next difficult period for the Ukrainian energy structure, apparently, will come this summer season, when the heat begins, and household consumers will begin to intensively use cooling systems and air conditioners.

In addition, taking into account the 50 percent damage to the energy system due to regular Russian shelling, a significant shortage of capacity is predicted during the coming heating season, therefore the deputy head of the Ministry of Energy summarized:

Therefore, there may be power outages for household consumers.
