    Power generation and consumption

    There is no shortage of electricity in the power system. The electricity generated in Ukraine is sufficient to meet the needs of consumers. Commercial electricity imports are also planned for the current day.

    Two TPP units were put out of service for emergency repairs, while 3 units of generating equipment were put back into operation after short-term repairs.

    Due to technical reasons, equipment caught fire at one of the frontline TPPs, no one was injured and the plant is operating normally.

    Hydro generation resources are being actively used to cover the increased consumption.
