Ukrainians cutting electricity use by up to 20%: operator


Some parts of Ukraine are reducing their electricity use by up to 20 percent, national energy operator Ukrenergo told AFP on Saturday.

“We are grateful to both people, who have reduced their consumption at home, and to businesses, who are doing the same in their offices and workplaces. We see savings in different regions and on different days the level of voluntary consumption reduction ranges from five to 20 percent on average,” Ukrenergo chief Volodymyr Kudrytskyi said in written comments to AFP. He added that while these were “significant volumes” for Ukraine’s energy system, they were not enough for regions where the infrastructure “suffered the most damage”.— AFP
