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 preparatory work was carried out in accordance with the order of the regional government, adopted in March this year, in compliance with the deadlines and strict control. More than 6 billion rubles were spent on these works. from the regional, local budgets, as well as funds of housing and communal services enterprises included in the tariff. Also, taking into account the fact that the budget has been adopted for the next three years, then, according to the minister, utilities have the opportunity to use the funds included in the budget of 2015 and 2016.

- To date, all appeals of the heads of municipalities to the governor have been satisfied. Not a single mayor can say that there were problems with money, - said G. Mitrik.

Moreover, according to the execution 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, while the plan was 6 percent. A complete audit of heating networks and water pipelines, backup heat supply sources was carried out. At the beginning of the heating season, a 45-day fuel supply was created, the consumption of which is monitored. An emergency reserve of material and technical resources was created in the amount of 293 million rubles. As G. Mitrik noted, none of the Far Eastern constituent entities of the Russian Federation has such a reserve.

“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.

Vladimir Sidorenko, Deputy General Director of OJSC Sakhalinenergo, 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 shutting down the Sakhalin GRES. And if there were gas interruptions, the island would be left without electricity.
