    Electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is enough to cover consumer needs, 400 grid access points in Kherson are powered after flooding

    Power generation

    Electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is sufficient to meet the needs of consumers. Power engineers continue to prepare the power system for the heating season, which will take place in the face of russian attacks. A large-scale repair campaign is underway at thermal, hydro and nuclear generation facilities.

    Situation in the frontline regions

    Enemy terror continues in the frontline and border regions with russia. In Donetsk region, damage to a 110 kV overhead power line resulted in a power outage at one of the generation facilities. The line was repaired and the restrictions lifted in less than an hour. In the region, about 12,000 consumers in 9 settlements lost power due to the hostilities. Most of them were reconnected by the end of the day.

    Hostile artillery shelling also cut off power to about 100 customers near Nikopol in Dnipropetrovsk region. All of them have now been reconnected.

    Some customers in Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv, Kherson, Sumy and Chernihiv regions remain without power. Repair crews are working where the security situation allows.

    Consequences of the Kakhovka HPP dam blow-up

    In Kherson, 3 transformer substations have been restored and more than 400 grid access points have been powered after the flooding. About 7,500 consumers in the city remain without power. Power engineers are working to restore power supply, but repairs are slowed down by shelling.

    Situation at the ZNPP

    A slight decrease in the water level in the ZNPP cooling pond is recorded. It is currently at 15.95 metres. This is enough to meet the needs of the plant.


    Commercial electricity imports over the past day totalled 525.00 MWh. Exports to Slovakia amounted to 2,360.00 MWh, and to Moldova – 1,898.00 MWh.
