About the fact that for the reason cold snap, rains and strong gusts of wind, the scale of electricity consumption has increased noticeably, and therefore it is necessary to start saving, writes NBN, referring to the warning published in the Ukrenergo Telegram channel.

As it became known, on the morning of Wednesday, April 17, the level of energy consumption increased by 6.5 percent, compared with the same indicator on Tuesday, April 16.

Ukrenergo emphasizes— To cover such dynamics, the additional inclusion of 3-4 units at thermal power plants (TPPs) is required, but at this stage this possibility is not available, since TPPs have become key targets for missile attacks by a terrorist state.

Energy engineers summarized: tonight, from 7 o'clock to 10 o'clock, you should consume electricity in an economical mode, which will prevent global power outages throughout Ukraine.
