DTEK lost 50% of its generating capacity as a result of Russian attacks. The most difficult situation is in the Kharkiv region, where power supply is expected to be fully restored only over the weekend. There are also blackouts in the Odesa region. In Kryvyi Rih, the authorities and power engineers have asked to reduce consumption.

According to DTEK, the situation is difficult in the Kharkiv region, where the largest number of homes are without electricity. In the Odesa region, stabilization outage schedules are in place.

In Kryvyi Rih district, people are asked to consume electricity wisely to get through this difficult period without blackouts. Traditionally, there are a lot of blackouts in Donetsk, Sumy and Kherson regions due to shelling.

"The damage is very serious. Power engineers all over Ukraine are working on restoration, which may take months or even longer," the company said. Ukrenergo adds that power engineers are gradually restoring power supply to Kharkiv.

All the critical infrastructure of the city has been powered up, and the power has been restored, albeit with certain restrictions. It may be possible to mitigate the current blackout schedules in Kharkiv over the weekend. This may be possible due to a decrease in consumption due to the significant warming forecast for Saturday and Sunday. Restoring the city's power supply in full may take one to two weeks, assuming no new massive attacks.

"Ukrenergo now has a sufficient number of equipment, repair teams, specialized machinery and materials. This is a significant difference from the last heating season, when equipment was in short supply. The only deterrent is the time it takes to complete all the repairs.

As reported, on the night of March 25, Russia attacked Ukrainian energy facilities with drones once again. Emergency power outages were introduced in Odesa and its region. Emergency blackouts reported, and the operation of public electric transport has been suspended. Schedules are being applied for consumers in Kharkiv and its region who are already connected to the grid after the previous shelling.
