But it is 4% less than the same period last year (358 million kWh). At the weekend, May 23-24, average consumption remained close to the level of the last weekend – 328 million kWh, which is 3.3% less than in the same period last year.
The peak electricity production from renewable sources last week fell on May 18 to 38.1 million kWh (SPPs – 28.7 million kWh, wind farms – 9.4 million kWh). The total electricity production from renewable energy sources amounted to 206.6 million kWh (8%less compared to last week).
Dispatch orders to limit the wind farms and solar power stations were not given.
The total load of nuclear power plants from May 18 to 24 continued to remain at the same level as the previous week – 7.3-7.4 GW.
Electric power generation at hydroelectric power stations on May 18-24 decreased by 10.2% (from 102.3 million kWh to 91.9 million kWh) compared to the previous week. At the same time, from the beginning of the month, hydroelectric power stations have generated 327.6 million kWh, which is 1.1% less than the forecast balance for May.
Electricity production at TPPs increased by 11.7% (from 658.6 million kWh to 735.6 million kWh) last week. The total electricity production at TPPs amounted to 2.2 billion kWh since the beginning of May, which is 8.9% less than the forecast balance.
