Electrical power consumption rises in Yekaterinburg

The Yekaterinburg Electrical Network Company announced on Wednesday that it transmitted 2.7 percent more electric power in the first seven months of 2012 compared with the same period last year.

The company transmitted 3.189 billion kilowatt hours of electric power during the time period, compared with 3.105 billion kilowatt hours the previous year. The Yekaterinburg Electrical Network Company registered an increase in the transmission of electric power at the beginning of the year, Ural Business Consulting reports.

"The increase in the amount of electric power supplied to consumers has to do with the dynamic development of the region's economy: the construction of apartment blocks and business and shopping centers," Alexander Taranenko, YENC's chief engineer, said, according to Ural Business Consulting. "The rapid development of the city's infrastructure means the consumers are using a lot of electric power."

Thirty-eight percent of the electric power transmitted was used by non-industrial consumers, 34 percent was used by the general population and 28 percent was used by local industrial enterprises.

The company prepared for the fall and winter seasons this summer by checking equipment and cable lines, maintaining its relay protection and automatic equipment and repairing its basic power equipment. YENC also plans to launch new electromobile charging stations and check its automatic dispatcher control system, Ural Business Consulting reports.
