No power consumption limits set for Thursday - Ukrainian grid operators

MOSCOW. March 2 (Interfax) - No electricity consumption limits have been introduced in Ukraine for Thursday, which means that hourly power outage schedules will be absent for the 19th consecutive day, Ukrainian media said, citing regional distribution system operators.

"Since there is no capacity deficit in the country now, Ukrenergo has not informed distribution system operators of any power consumption limits," the Sumy region's distribution system operator said on social media.

At the same time, the distribution system operators both in the Sumy region and some other regions of Ukraine call on consumers to save electricity in order not to cause any additional loads in damaged grids.

The Zaporozhye, Poltava, Chernovtsy, and Volyn regional power operators, as well as the DTEK power company supplying power to the city of Kiev and the Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, and Odessa regions have also said on social media that no power consumption limits were set for March 2.

At the same time, DTEK said that, because of damage caused to Ukrenergo's grids, scheduled outages are possible in some local power systems.
