The debt of the population for electricity in Primorye for 1 August exceeded 1 billion rubles - Dalenergosbyt

The debts of the population of Primorsky Territory for electricity as of August 1, 2014 exceeded 1 billion rubles. This was reported by the press service of Dalenergosbyt (a branch of OJSC DEK).

This situation forces the power engineers to switch off the power supply for non-payers. Thus, according to Dalenergosbyt, from January to July, there were more than 22 thousand defaulters in the region without power supply in the amount of almost 290 million rubles. "In August, thousands of consumers in the amount of 5 million rubles were already left without electricity over 72,2," the company said.

At the same time, the energy sector applies the whole range of measures to influence defaulters provided for by current legislation: sending notifications, filing lawsuits in court, seizing property, debiting funds from bank accounts, restricting travel outside the Russian Federation. As a result of the pre-trial and claim-related work of 286, thousands of consumers paid for the consumed energy in the amount of 626 million rubles, the company said.

After changes in the Rules for the provision of public utilities, approved by a government decree in February 2014, a non-payer consumer is sufficient to accumulate debt in the amount of two consumption standards in order to remain without electricity for debt.
