Restrictions on electricity consumption will apply to household consumers in the central and northern regions, Ukrainian electricity transmission system operator Ukrenergo said on Facebook on Oct. 28.
According to the company, forced restrictions will apply to residential consumers in the central (the city of Kyiv, and Kyiv, Chernihiv, Cherkasy and Zhytomyr oblasts) and northern (Sumy, Kharkiv and Poltava oblasts) regions of the country, whose networks were most affected this week.
Ukrenergo noted energy companies would be forced to limit electricity supplies to consumers to eliminate the aftermath of Russian missile attack on Oct. 27.
“This is done to prevent the network from being overloaded,” the report says.
Earlier the DTEK energy company announced they were preparing new blackouts schedules for Kyiv. The duration of restrictions can be increased to six hours.
