SIMFEROPOL, November 22. /TASS/. Crimea’s own electric power generation covers less than a half of the peninsula’s needs for electricity, Crimean Fuel and Energy Minister Sergei Yegorov said after a meeting of the emergency headquarters on Sunday.
"The morning maximum consumption in the Crimean federal district is about 800 MW at such air temperatures. We have 350 MW of our own electricity generation and are short of another 450 MW. That is why, schedules of temporary electricity disconnections for these 450 MW will be introduced," he said.
The schedules of electricity blackouts will be brought to the notice of local residents every two hours, he said.
Fuel stocks for backup electric power supply sources in Crimea will suffice for at least 30 days, Crimea’s Frist Vice-Premier and head of the emergency headquarters Mikhail Sheremet said on Sunday.
"We have fuel reserves. No doubt, we understand that we depend on weather and the ferry to some extent. But nonetheless we can work calmly during 30 days," he said.
Crimea has activated all backup electricity supply sources after Ukraine completely cut off electric power supply to the Black Sea peninsula.
All large cities on the Crimean peninsula are supplied with electric power after electricity supplies from Ukraine were completely cut off, Crimea’s First Vice-Premier Mikhail Sheremet said.
"We actually have all the cities connected [to power supply]," said Sheremet who heads the headquarters for eliminating the consequences of an emergency situation on the Black Sea peninsula.
Powerful electricity supply generators will be sent to the regions experiencing difficulties with electric power supply, he added.
The Crimean first vice-premier earlier said that schedules of disconnecting households from electricity and water supply would be introduced in Crimea due to the shortage of local power generating capacities.
