KIEV, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea's energy suppliers, Krymenergo and Sevastopolenergo can be switched off, if electricity debts increase, Ukrainian parliament-appointed Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Yury Prodan told a news conference on Tuesday.
“The peninsula has two energy suppliers - Krymenergo and Sevastopolenergo. They buy electricity on the energy market and pay for it. If their debt swells, these companies can be cut off,” said the Minister.
On March 24, the controller of the Crimean electricity system instructed the Krymenergo energy supplier to introduce a schedule of emergency shutdowns in order to reduce the energy burden as Crimea was separated from the Ukrainian unified energy system and because of emergency maintenance works at the Kakhovka-Ostrovskaya and Melitopol-Dzhankoy lines.
