Since October, Ukrainians have had electricity for a full 24 hours for three consecutive days.

Ukrenergo, Ukraine’s transmission system operator, reported that for the third consecutive day, there is no electricity deficit in the country, providing enough power for all citizens around the clock, rather than on a scheduled basis.

This is the first time such an occurrence has happened since October 2022 when Russia began targeting Ukraine’s power grid and plants, trying to deprive Ukrainians of power. However, the plan failed, as Ukraine’s air defense system downed almost 85% of the Russian missiles launched, and the country has since upgraded its capabilities. Russia’s missile supply is also running low.

Ukrenergo confirmed that the situation has improved due to the restoration of several thermal power plants and the import of additional electricity from Slovakia. However, power grid networks near Odesa and other regions have been severely damaged, making it difficult for some customers to receive electricity, despite there being enough in the system.

Presently, more than 10 GW of Ukraine’s primary power-generating facilities, including the largest Zaporizhzhia NPP in Europe, the Zaporizhzhia TPP, Luhansk TPP, Vugleghirska TPP, and Kakhovka HPP, remain inaccessible to Ukraine and under the control of Russia.
