At first, the arranged power block really led to certain problems, since there wasn’t enough own generation on the peninsula, and the residents had electricity for 6-8 hours a day. But it did not last long. Since Russia in 2015 built an energy bridge from the Kuban, from where the flow of missing electricity to the peninsula began.
And now, the first unit of the Tavricheskaya TPP (Simferopol) and the second unit of the Balaklavskaya TPP (Sevastopol) have now been launched, which made it possible to add (in total) about 470 MW to the total piggy bank of electricity generation on the peninsula. And in the Crimea now there is an excess of electricity. Therefore, the first 29 MW of surplus electricity has already been supplied to the Kuban through an energy bridge that was prudently built before.
But it will not be surprising if Ukraine itself begins to "beg" for these surpluses, already in the coming winter. After all, the largest peak in electricity consumption in Crimea falls on the summer period, and Ukrainian "patriots" are suspiciously silent.
