Starting on Tuesday, October 11, the company will publish schedules with addresses and outage times on the website in advance on a daily basis. It is expected that the duration of outages will not exceed several hours.

In addition, during the evening consumption peak (from 17:00 to 22:00), the authority ask not to turn on washing machines, boilers, air conditioners, electric kettles, etc. If necessary, use them at night, when consumption will be significantly reduced.
