Kosovo Starts Power Cuts As A Result Of Energy Crisis


(MENAFN- The Peninsula) Reuters

PRISTINA: Kosovo's energy distribution company, KEDS, said it would start power cuts at 8 a.m. on Monday because of a lack of domestic production and high import prices.“Consumers will have six hours on and two hours off,” KEDS spokesperson Viktor Buzhala told Reuters.

The company did not say when the cuts would end. Buzhala said that the company is getting only 500 MWh/h from lignite power plants and renewables and that consumption is reaching up to 800 MWh/h. In a statement on Sunday, KEDS said that it and the country's transmission system operator, KOSTT, could not afford to import electricity and must rely on domestic production.
