Power in Crimea is distributed unevenly, said the so-called Head of the Kerch City Council Sergey Pisarev as cited by the press service of the City Council.

- The situation remains tough. The city is limited with 44 MW. When we have additional wind and solar power generation systems in Crimea, we will be allowed to use up to 60 MW. Peak times are mornings and evenings and we have only 44 MW for this time since consumption is growing all over Crimea. First of all, the power is supplied to residential houses 3 hours after 3. Many people do not like it, but, unfortunately, we have only this amount, said Pisarev.

He went on saying that in all other Crimean cities, except of Simferopol, the electricity is distributed evenly.

- We all have friends and acquaintances in other cities, let's call them and find out the amount of power supplied. Today, I called the South Coast, they are delivered power 2 hours after 2 – this is the city of Alushta, Yalta and all villages up to Sevastopol. We have selected a 3 to 3 mode. In fact, residents get electricity 14-18 hours per day, while at night, the power is supplied to the city's industrial enterprises, said Pisarev.
