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

The debts of the population of the 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 power engineers to cut off power supply from non-payers. So, according to Dalenergosbyt, from January to July more than 22 thousand defaulters in the amount of almost 290 million rubles were left without electricity in the region. “In August, more than 5 thousand consumers were left without electricity for the amount of 72,2 million rubles,” the company said.

At the same time, power engineers apply the whole range of measures to influence defaulters provided for by the current legislation: sending notifications, filing lawsuits, seizing property, writing off funds from bank accounts, restricting travel outside the Russian Federation. As a result of pre-trial and claim-and-claim work, 286 thousand consumers paid for the consumed energy resources in the amount of 626 million rubles, the company notes.

After changes in the Rules for the provision of utilities, approved by a government decree in February 2014, a non-paying consumer needs only to accumulate a debt in the amount of two consumption standards in order to be left without electricity for debts.
