Sakhalin summed up the first results of the heating season

Preparations for the 2014-2015 heating season became the topic of discussion of the "Government Hour" at the next meeting of the Sakhalin Regional Duma. The main speaker, the regional minister of energy, housing and communal services, Georgy Mitrik, said that the heating season is taking place as usual.

All the preparatory work was carried out in accordance with the order of the regional government, adopted in March this year, with the observation of deadlines and strict control. These works spent more than 6 billion rubles. from the regional, local budgets, as well as the funds of the housing and communal services enterprises, which are included in the tariff. Also, taking into account the fact that the budget was adopted for the next three years, according to the minister, public utilities have the opportunity to use the funds put into the budget of 2015 and 2016.

- To date, all appeals of heads of municipal entities to the governor have been satisfied. No mayor can say that there were problems with money, - G. Mitric stressed.

Moreover, according to the implementation of the instructions of the President of the Russian Federation and the governor, the volume of replacement of emergency networks left more than 10 percent, with the plan of 6 percent. A complete audit of heat networks and water pipelines, backup sources of heat supply. At the beginning of the heating season, an 45-day fuel reserve was created, at the expense of which the operational control is carried out. The emergency reserve of material and technical resources was created for the amount of 293 million rubles. As noted by G. Mitric, there is no such reserve in any Far Eastern subject of the Russian Federation.

"I am sure that we will pass the current season with honor, like the previous one, and everything will be fine," the minister assured the deputies.

Deputy General Director of OJSC Sakhalinenergo Vladimir Sidorenko reported on the state of power supply facilities. He is also confident that the company is ready for the winter - all repair and maintenance work has been carried out according to plan. However, the financial condition of the company, according to V. Sidorenko, raises concerns. The reason for this is the lack of growth in energy consumption, as a result of which about 250 million rubles were lost. In addition, in the first half of the year, there was an overregulation of tariffs at the federal level and Sakhalinenergo's revenues decreased by another 186 million rubles. At the same time, the tariffs for legal entities remained the same and will remain the same until mid-2015. Therefore, in order to save money, it was necessary to take such an unprecedented measure as stopping the Sakhalin GRES. And if there were gas interruptions, the island would be left without electricity.
