No electricity shortage, a CHPP unit has been repaired and will add 250 MW of capacity to the grid
Power generation and consumption
There is no shortage of electricity in the Ukrainian power system. Domestic generation is sufficient to cover the needs of all consumers. Commercial electricity imports are also planned.
After a long repair, a CHPP unit was connected to the grid. It will add 250 MW of additional capacity.
Three TPP units and one block were taken out of service for short-term repairs, while three units of generating equipment were put back into operation after emergency repairs. Seven units of thermal power plants are in reserve and will be used if necessary.
The situation is under control. The system is balanced. No outage schedules are applied.
Consequences of shelling
Heat supply has been fully restored in Kyiv after the shelling on 7 February.

The water level in the cooling pond is 15.59 metres. This is enough to meet the plant’s needs.
