The increase in power consumption can be defined to the introduction of new production facilities at large industrial enterprises.
The volume of internal power generation in the region for the current period amounted to 674.1 million kW/h that is 16.7% lower compared to the same period of the last year (809.4 million kWh). The reduction in the power generation volume is due to the decrease in the amount of power produced by Rudnenskaya CHP for own needs, which can be explained by the change in the operating equipment.
Thermal energy production for 7 months of 2018 amounted to 2609.2 thousand GKal, which is higher by 9.1% compared to the same period of 2017.
