Ukrainian electricity transmission system operator Ukrenergo on Nov. 2 tasked regional power distribution companies with setting limits on power supplies to all categories of consumers in Sumy, Kharkiv and Poltava oblasts.
Blackout schedules have been temporarily suspended in these regions.
“Unfortunately, today’s blackout schedules are insufficient to maintain the stable operation of the power system,” Ukrenergo said, explaining the latest measures.
According to Ukrenergo, temporary controlled restrictions of all consumer categories are necessary to reduce the load on power grids, support the sustainable balancing of the power system, and to avoid repeated accidents after the power grids were damaged by Russian missile and drone attacks.
It said this would enable energy companies to restore damaged energy facilities as soon as possible, balance the system, and provide consumers with power.
Meanwhile, Ukrenergo warned there would continue to be blackouts on Nov. 2.
The electricity supply was scheduled to be cut off in the capital city of Kyiv and seven other regions, it said.
