“In Zhytomyr and Kharkiv regions, with an increase in consumption during peak hours, it is possible to use hourly outage schedules,” the company warned.

In addition, as a result of enemy artillery shelling, grids in the frontline areas of Kharkiv and Kherson regions were damaged – where the security situation allows, repair work continues.

As the company added, the power supply to consumers de-energized due to weather conditions, in particular, gusty winds in Zhytomyr and Sumy regions, also continues.

“In other regions, energy consumption restrictions were not applied, the limits were not brought up. The volumes of electricity produced in the system are sufficient to cover the needs of all consumers,” Ukrenergo stressed.
