A surplus of electricity was recorded in the power system, which was transferred to Poland. There were also restrictions on renewable energy generation
Power generation and consumption
There is no electricity deficit in the power system. Yesterday, there was a surplus during the daytime hours. To balance the system during the daytime hours (from 13:00 to 16:00), surplus electricity in the amount of 600 MWh was transferred to the power system of Poland.
Restrictions on electricity generation from renewables were also applied during the day.
During the day, two TPP units in different regions of the country went into emergency repair. One power unit was transferred from emergency repair to reserve.
As of 10:00 a.m., 6 TPP units are in reserve and can be brought back online as needed.
The situation is under control. The electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is sufficient to meet the needs of consumers. Commercial electricity exports are also planned. No blackout schedules are in place.
Consequences of shelling
Yesterday, the enemy shelled the territory of a thermal power plant in Donetsk region, damaging the plant’s equipment and the adjacent power grid. Another shelling took place in the morning.
The shelling caused a power outage in the region, which cut off electricity to consumers.
In Chernihiv region, enemy shelling damaged the networks of a regional power company. This led to the disconnection of more than 2,000 household consumers.
Situation at the ZNPP
The water level in the cooling pond remains stable at 15.64 metres. This is sufficient to meet the plant’s needs.
Electricity imports totalled 11,808 MWh. There were no exports.
