This was announced by so-called deputy minister for fuel and energy of the peninsula Sergey Bazhan, Censor.NET reports citing Krym.Realii.
"For fall and winter, Crimea and Sevastopol are forecast to consume 1,467 Mega Watts of electricity. 1,181 Mega Watts will be delivered to the peninsula, and 286 Mega Watts to Sevastopol. Last year, the highest level of evening consumption in the past five years was 1,456 Mega Watts. Given the trend of development of Crimea in all economic sectors, we plan to develop a schedule of temporary power cuts," Bazhan said.
The volume of the cuts will make up to 360 Mega Watts.
The Russia-annexed peninsula has been experiencing problems with power supply since 2015, when power lines in the Kherson region of mainland Ukraine were damaged. Currently Crimea receives electricity from its own generation, generators from Russia, and power bridge from Kuban.
