Power outage periods in Kiev have decreased, but the situation is still difficult
In Ukraine, additional generation capacity has been connected, which can provide more energy.
This was reported by YASNO CEO Serhiy Kovalenko
He said that additional generation capacities have been connected, which together gave Ukraine +1000MW. But all this capacity will be divided among all the regions. Therefore, it will not help the capital city much.
Kovalenko also said that on the updated schedules, there is light during the light grey zone, which marks the time of possible blackouts. And he assured that there will be more light thanks to today's increase.
But there are still complex issues to be resolved.
Generation is growing, but not yet to the level it was before the shelling. But even if it was full, it could not be transmitted because of damage to the networks. The networks are being repaired, but it takes time.
In addition, he said that now the absence of light for 8 hours is not the norm. And it is likely that the cause is a local accident
